Overgrown tree

Reported via mobile in the Tree blocking daylight category anonymously at 19:08, Fri 20 August 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2948853.


As pictured, this tree is overgrown (it appears to be overrun by another aggressive species) and is blocking full use of our driveway due to overgrown/low hanging branches. It is also blocking daylight from entering our house in the evenings.

At present it is home to many noisy nesting birds (my 11 month old sons bedroom is adjacent to this tree and is proving to be a nuisance when trying to get him to sleep in the evening).

The tree is rooted outside of my property line.

I’d be grateful if action could be taken to trim this tree back please.

Many thanks
