  • Can you advise when this work will be completed. Vehicles will soon be damaged as the foliage is touching car rooves. The local MP has been contacted by another resident I believe. Can someone please mail back on what happens with regards roots damaging property. Where do we stand? Apparently the trees should be trimmed every 2years but this isn’t happening

  • Work completed today but......only roadside branch appears to have been pruned. What is happening with the other trees overhanging paths and gardens and the state of the footpaths. Accident waiting to happen. Also the roots under the paths and our new wall. Can you confirm who is liable for any damage caused by these structurally? Do we need to seek advise from the local MP?

  • As you can see trees still cause an issue. Problem not solved. No reply to 2 previous requests to be contacted about this issue. Believe the road opposite, Washington court is going to be visited by yourselves so could we perhaps tie in the visit to discuss Springfield/Hilcrest too. Appreciate a reply. Thankyou
