Problem tree

Reported via mobile in the Overhanging Trees category anonymously at 17:23, Monday 23 August 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2953900.

Hello. I hope that you are well. I have a couple of problems with this tree. It’s overhanging our property and dropping large branches on our cars which could potentially cause damage. The tree also thinks it’s autumn and is already shedding its leaves. I am concerned that the tree may has ash dye back. Please can you arrange for someone to come and trim it back and also maybe inspect it for the ash dye back. Thanks
