Ash tree blocking light to my garden

Reported via mobile in the Overhanging branches category anonymously at 15:06, Friday 8 July 2022

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3661454.

I have requested this Ash tree to be removed several times over the last 9 years, it’s now that big it’s blocking the sun on half of my garden including my greenhouse. It’s also starting to lean against my wall. When the leaves start to drop they all fall into my garden which on a few occasions I have slipped on wet leaves which I cannot keep picking up as I have osteoarthritis arthritis in my spine and find it difficult to keep bending down and as the sun cannot get through onto my path in the winter my path becomes green and slippery. Once and for all please get rid of this troublesome tree or I will get it cut down and send you the bill just like you would me if it was my tree doing the same to a public footpath.
