This tree has grown over our extension's flat roof up to the point where it now needs a professional to address it.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 13:59, Tuesday 22 September 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2306761.

This council tree (by the bus shelter) grows out of control and further and further over our flat roof. The height, related safety issues and disposal of what will be a lot of branches etc means this is a job for a professional. This is not just a case of the homeowner "doing a bit of pruning" to one or two overhanging branches. It causes us guttering issues and is almost halfway across the roof, so please can this be rectified? Many thanks, J Rose
