Brambles preventing work climbers on brickwork

Reported via mobile in the Growth at the bottom of trees/regrowth category anonymously at 09:07, Monday 1 November 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3096265.

The brambles against the fence were recently cut back by yourselves but as usual not low enough to allow any painting to the fence. These brambles grow rapidly once in growth season. The brambles and suchlike to the back of my property, again, have recently been cut back but as you can see there are those that have been left to climb up the wall causing possible damage to the property and guttering. I have had problems with roots from either your trees or brambles in the past which caused a great degree of damage and money to my downpipe and in the end you (the Trees Dept) washed their hands of it, basically saying it wasn’t their problem. I would like you to address this problem immediately before it escalates and look forward to hearing from you.
