A very old maple tree that has never cut back.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 21:27, Friday 22 May 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2125947.

This tree is blocking my light in my front window, porch and we never get sun in my front garden. The fallen leaves land in my front garden and block the gutters. I am left to sweep and collect leaves. The sap in making my car sticky and I have no where else to park but under this huge unkept tree. It also blocks light in my neighbours back garden no 21. To my knowledge its not been cut back in years. I live at no 10 mays way Potterspury. NN12 7PP.
