Not trees but shrubs but no option given on your menus for this??? The walkway next to 47 Paulsgrove has shrubs, greenery and ivy etc that are overgrown and out of control. They are pushing on my fence, the ivy is growing so it is hanging over my fence and also growing underneath my fence pushing up on to the path at the side of the fence. The greenery will soon be up my garage wall. I am 66 yrs old and cannot keep up with the overgrowth anymore. Please can it be trimmed back Sue Drake, 07743494914
