Overgrown tree roots causing problems in garden

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 09:04, Tuesday 4 August 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2229739.

Re 8 cypress close. The tree roots are coming through the lawn in the garden and have been uprooting slabs. They are heading for the house and could cause subsidence. This is not what we would like and obviously would have to act before this happened but that could cause instability to the tree so the tree needs some work before this work can be carried out. Reported to KBC but state needs to be reported to Street Doctor.
