Trees have caused obstruction to our shed roof

Reported via desktop in the Tree is considered to be causing damage category by Simran Bains at 22:23, Tue 24 November 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2404025.

We have had to remove the ceiling in our shed as the growth from the trees behind our property (situated in the park) have damaged and broken the roof. We need some reassurance that the trees that are severely overgrown behind our property will be cut down to stop this happening again as we are worried that we will continue to have this problem in future. It's difficult to define how long this issue has been going on for as we did not realise the severity of the issue until we removed all of the ceiling boards and I am not sure if the trees have ever been cut down. We live at 88 chestnut avenue.

I have enclosed pictures for your review.

Thank you.
