Tree is so big it blocks out light
Reported via mobile in the Overhanging branches category anonymously at 18:38, Wednesday 22 June 2022
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3616326.
Please can you send someone round to check this tree. It’s branches now overhang more than half the road. Some of the branches are about 6/7 feet from my window, and it blocks the light during the day. I would like some guidance on cutting the over hanging branches on my drive as it is ruining my car with the amount of bird Pooh. It’s relentless. I’ve live here 10 years and can’t cope with it anymore. It actually makes me want to move, it gets me down that much. The sap is unbearable too. I need someone to talk to about this as it will look quite bare if I cut my bits back and I don’t want to get into trouble as it’s a big tree, and will be noticeable considerably.
