Tree is severely overgrown and needs trimming

Reported via Android in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 20:06, Tuesday 18 June 2024

Sent to West Northamptonshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6124490.

We have reported this tree on numerous occasions as we've noticed vans struggling to get under it. Also could be an issue for emergency vehicles. It's also overgrowing into both our drive and garden. During spring time the sap causes issues with cars with It's sticky residue difficult to remove. In Autumn/winter the amount leaves it deposits causes a concerning slip hazard for the elderly people who live in Kinross close. So much so that for the past three years I've personally had to clean these up! (Which is particularly annoying as we have to pay to have our garden waste collected and the vast majority of it is caused by this tree and me cleaning it up from the pathway). I actually like the tree but it completely overgrown and needs a tree surgeon team to rectify, as it council property then it's the council responsibility to maintain it.
