The tree is blocking light to my property, it is overhanging into my property by 15-20 feet, the bottom of the tree is now 6 foot from the floor when lorries goes past they snap branches that causes issues for pedestrians and also fall onto peoples car. The tree has also caused a Broadband outage at my house twice in the past 7 months due to the size of the tree and when it blows in the wind, Openreach have had to come and fix the connection to my house and in fact last time moved the connection on my property because of the tree - it is ridiculous and needs cutting back.
