Very large overgrown tree

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 10:38, Mon 2 November 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2367108.

This tree is located directly outside our house. Branches fall off constantly, ranging from small twigs to larger branches whoch can be very dangerous and damaging to cars etc. The issue has been going on for many years, but we have been dealing with it since we moved in April 2019. The tree was inspected back in the summer 2019 and a sign was placed up saying the tree was going to be cut down. However this has not been done as yet. We are worried that it may fall down, especially when it is very windy. The tree also causes a sticky substance to fall and makes our driveway very sloppy and dangerous for our children, they have slipped and hurt themselves on many occasions. This is not just causing problems for us, it is affecting nearby neighbours both next door and opposite us.
