2 over gown tree next my property cause damage

Reported via mobile in the Tree is considered to be causing damage category anonymously at 11:42, Sun 14 November 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3122610.

Unfortunately, we have two overgrown trees (at least 20 meters ) next to my home and they cause damage to my garden and my gutters. The garden is full of leaves every autumn that I must clean although it is not my tree, therefore why would I pay for all of the leaves to be cleaned? In addition, the main issue is the leaves blocking the gutters on the roof, causing leakage in the house, which means I must pay a company to clean the gutters, which once again is caused by the trees that are not mine. Also, when the weather is very windy, there is the risk that the trees can damage my home. Therefore, I ask you to trim the branches that are overgrown, growing into my garden as it is out of my own power, also clean the blocked gutters ASAP and garden every autumn .
