Hi so i’ve reported previously since i’ve moved in to be told that the trees are on waiting list end august/september time to be cut down. since then i’ve had no updates or heard anything. i’ve got the leave covering back garden which daily i have to rake up and sort amongst branches twigs snapping of into garden. i’ve small children and animals. even one of my pond fishes has died. It’s blocking my drains, gutters and making garden look appalling for the amount money and hours spent levelling out one part of the garden. I’m wondering when the tree will be cut back as this section also over hangs carpark area which also is meant to be maintained and hasn’t since i’ve lived here as i’ve been sorting steps for safety and sweeping leave up best i can amongst children household and work myself. I understand the period of nesting is over but would like this resolved quickly before we get more drastic weather as there no guarantee that myself kids or animals will be safe if anything breaks. thanks
