2 trees near 28 Watergall, on road side

Reported in the Overgrown trees category by Collette Francis at 17:49, Wed 26 August 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2265169.

These 2 trees are well above house level.

They block out light for most of the day.

They interfere with TV signals due to their size.

Cover neighbouring properties with debris and seeds/saplings.

1 tree closest to the houses touches the house especially when windy, this tree is also "thorny" and drop thorns into gardens causing injury to any one including children out in the garden.

Thankfully they remained sound in recent winds, but should they get blown over, given the size of them, they would severely damage properties and possibly cause fatal injuries no matter which direction they should fall.

These need to be cut back by at least half the height.
