Trees growing on the footpath with branches touching my house

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2349166.

Trees growing on the footpath outside my house now have branches that have reached over the boundary fence and are touching the side of my house - they also cover my driveway/parking area. This issue has been ongoing since I moved here in 2014

  • We have visited site and observed the tree in its location. The tree appears to be in a reasonable condition on inspection with few defects observed, on this occasion no statutory works are appropriate on the tree as described in the enquiry. Should you notice a significant decline in the tree’s overall health, please feel free to get back in touch with us.

    Many thanks for your enquiry.
