Overgrown tree

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 15:55, Tuesday 10 May 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 3515900.

The large tree on the grass verge next to the pavement alongside my property (16 Turner Close) and which I reported in June 2020 and again in Aug 2021 as needing a good cutback has still not been dealt with. It is causing an obstruction on the pavement as it hits an adults head when walking under it. The tree is also overhanging my fence which is a nuisance as it drops seeds and leaves and the roots are cracking the pavement once more and have started to dislodge the kick boards at the bottom of my fence. I am concerned that in time, they will affect my patio. This tree needs a severe cut back .
