Overgrown trees over fence

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 15:15, Monday 19 April 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2679543.

At the side of 83 Wingfield there are a number of overgrown trees. One is now hanging over but not touching the fence into my garden. The tree next to it has grown extremely tall and are both fighting for space. The wider tree appears to either have 2 other trees closely grown next to it or it has rooted 2 large branches low down which are now the size of full trees. There is a cluster of about 5 or 6 trees. Due to the height I get very little sunlight in my garden and say it's shaded about 99% of the day. The tree next to the garage is also extremely high and now starting to touch the side of the garage.

I also have substantial damage to my garage which is yet to be investigated but I believe has been caused due to the size of the trees. My garage seems to be suffering subsidence and my garden also has damage.
