Issues with trees near my land next to the A47

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 12:10, Fri 4 December 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2417573.

I have lived here for 10 years. The trees behind the fence have never been maintained. I have attempted to contact highways agency, zero, the local MP, to you, zero. Some of the trees are overgrown, too high. Its also very noisy. This issue relates to the tree.

Within the corner and the middle of the garden, there are some trees which need trimming. Branches hanging over into the garden. Some break in wind and fall near the slide area. I have spoken to a tree surgeon who mentioned, even though the tree are in my property, they may be protected. So I need this addressing once and for all, with regards to the trees, cutting and maintenance since some are coming into my garden, outside my boundary.
