Roots growing from tree in cuckoos hollow

Reported via mobile in the Problem with tree roots category anonymously at 13:41, Fri 9 July 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2852690.

Roots from tree in cuckoos hollow now growing through my path and patio. They are approximately 5 feet away from my house foundations and something needs doing with the tree to stop the root growth before it affects my home more than it is now. I am paying for someone to level off my path and patio every time the roots push it up but I tripped this morning over one of the bricks and it’s becoming a nusiance. It has recently had branches cut back from overgrowing my garden but this has not fixed the root problem. I have small cherry trees coming up all over the place from the roots. I’m not one to down trees but sadly this one is becoming a big issue for me.
