Tree roots damaging private property

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 08:43, Sunday 16 May 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2728684.

The roots from this tree have not only pushed up the pavement making it unsafe for people to walk over, but it is virtually impossible for disabled people to use this part of the pavement.

More importantly, these roots are pushing up the driveway of the house behind it as well as the adjacent wall which now stands precariously. On top of that, the tv cable had to be reinstalled where the roots had destroyed the cable and its plastic housing.

This has gradually been getting worse over the last three years and can't be ignored anymore.
