Tree will cause an issue with the lantern as branches will keep hitting it, over time will damage lantern and node. Larger branches around column will block all the light from rhe lantern. The only cracking in the footway is about a meter from the column where Tree roots are pushing up under the tarmac. see attached photos. Please can you arrange for the tree to be trimmed and look into the issue with the tarmac as well
