Overhanging, untidy messy trees

Sent to Richmondshire District Council 1 minute later

Pedestrian footpath at the rear of Glebe Close.

These are blocking out a lot of light, sucking nutrients from the grass, making it difficult to grow and mossy, blowing seeds and of course, leaves everywhere!

They also cause severe moss on the footpath, (because it is dark) and could be dangerous in the winter months, due to slipping. (My husband already has his leg pinned and plated from a bad fall).

There will be loads of wet leaves soon.

The council should tidy them up, especially, the overhanging branches.
