Large tree over hanging from Eckweek Lane

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 10:08, Fri 25 March 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3415054.

Resident from 60 Westbury View advises a large tree that grows from within a hedge along the Eckweek Lane, is now so large it blocks the light from their garden.

Will continue to grow and obstruct as the year progresses.

(Hedge was recently trimmed back).

Resident requests permission to have the tree cut back professionally before nesting season begins.

Can provide photos.
