Overgrown trees

Reported via mobile in the Tree debris (droppings, sap or seeds) category anonymously at 12:05, Sunday 21 March 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2623240.

The big tree on the communal green is overgrown but the big problem is the tree on the boundary of 24 smallwood. The residents of 24 smallwood assure me they have complained several times to no avail. The tree is seriously overgrown and has damaged the fence over the years. It also blocks all sunlight to my house and garden. The debris from the tree and sap is colossal and has damaged my entire garden and garden furniture. There is also the problem with ivy. It covers the entire fence and keeps climbing the house. It has damaged my house and has caused major mould problems in the bedroom and possibly the attic and roof as well. I reside at 23 smallwood.
