I am contacting you regarding overhanging tree at 284 Addington Road Irthlingborough. The tree is situated on Welford Avenue on the public pathway, adjacent to our driveway. The tree has been dropping sap and debris onto our car and driveway for several weeks.

Can you please arrange for the tree to be cut back.

  • Just to keep you updated, 3 vans of workmen arrived in 23rd Dec and cut off approx 12 to 15 small branches and then left after approx 20 mins. As you can see from the attached photo, there are still a large number of branches overhanging our driveway, some of which look dead and are likely to fall off.

    I am not sure what their instructions were, but it was not the resolution we were expecting. We would appreciate it if this can be resolved before the leaves grow back on the tree and drop further sap and debris onto our driveway and cars.
