Maintenance of trees - Bathford

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 14:07, Wed 30 June 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2829413.

I am writing regarding the trees that are behind our property’s fence at the end of our garden. We love the trees and definitely do not want them removed, we would just like to request that they are cut back please.

The trees are hanging over our garden so much now, resulting in our garden constantly being covered in bird poo. I have a 3 year old and 5 year old, and they can no longer play or run around the grass area as they too are then covered in poo (shoes, feet, hands). It has also covered their little trampoline which can’t go anywhere else, and is ruining it.

We have lived here for 4 years, and this year it has become a real problem. They have not been cut in those 4 years, and the neighbours cannot remember it being done before.

I genuinely believe this to be a health hazard for my children, please could you confirm what are the next steps and what might be possible?
