Tree to right of number 17 between fence and public footpath.

Reported in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 14:20, Tuesday 10 September 2019

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 1762770.

Tree is 1. 1 metre from fence at shoulder height and 0.7 metres from fence at base; 3 metres from bungalow at shoulder height and 2.3 metres from bungalow at base 2. one and a half times the height of the bungalow, overhangs the fence and is starting to overhang the bungalow; 3. dropping leaves, berries and twigs which are continually blocking the side drainage guttering.

Of concern also is the possibility of tree roots invading the property with subsequent serious damage.

We would venture to suggest that the tree requires severe lopping of the branches or felling completely.

We have lived here since 29 July but understand from a neighbour that the issue has been present for some time, at least 3 years.
