Ash tree overgrown although beautiful its roots have pushed up the pavement and has become a hazard to pedestrians

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Felicity Harrison at 10:53, Friday 16 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2343544.

Someone came to see the tree on a day when I said I was not available. He left a message saying the tree was OK and did not need attention. I disagree with his decision. The roots of the tree have damaged the pavement and lead into my front garden. The tree needs to be trimmed back as it is overgrown and there are thousands of ash seeds being shed at present. The tree is beautiful and gives a welcome shade in summer for parked cars but right now the extras are a hazard to walkers and the elderly in the area.
