Overgrowth on tree lines making visibility hard

Reported via mobile in the Growth at the bottom of trees/regrowth category anonymously at 14:32, Thu 17 June 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2798842.

I reported the tree outside our property as having too much overgrowth which restricts visibility of oncoming traffic and makes it difficult to leave our driveway safely. You said you would send someone out to inspect. Today I notice the tree on the opposite side of the road having all its overgrowth removed and the men working on it said it was because it had been reported as making visibility difficult. I think they may have done the wrong tree instead of the one I reported they have done the one on the opposite side of the road where the bus stop is. It is not this one that I reported. I reported the tree outside 169. As you can see from my photos ours is much more over grown than the one next to it but if all 5 trees could have their lower leaves removed it would make it easier to get out of our driveways without almost causing accidents each time. Thank you
