Tree roots causing a trip hazard were recently removed and new tarmac laid. However, new growth from the remaining roots has broken through the tarmac and is growing rapidly. (1st picture taken 1 August, other 2 on 4 August). Further action needed to prevent more damage to tarmac and renewed trip hazard.

  • Someone has cut down the breakthrough growth but there are signs of it reappearing as the roots have not been tackled and the tarmac has not been repaired. The photo below was taken on 9 August showing significant growth since previous photo taken 4 August and at the point when it was cut down it had grown considerably taller.
