Sycamore tree seeds

Reported via desktop in the Weeds category anonymously at 18:08, Wednesday 5 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2708720.

I have just received a response to my report of February ( Thank you for your enquiry an inspection will be undertaken within 10 days. An inspection has been completed and the footpath was clear of vegetation State changed to: No further action) It says the footpath was CLEAR BUT this was not my complaint as I advised that I have been here nearly 20 years and every year mine (and others) gardens are showered with sycamore seeds from the tree in the pathway which start to grow unless swept up. I asked if the tree could be pruned (or Pollarded) to reduce the amount of seeds produced. I believe there was a separate issue with an Ashridge Close Neighbour at the same time as my report where the hedges substantially overhung the footpath but this has now been resolved. Can your please look again at my request, Thank You

  • Sorry when forwarding this request a cut and paste option failed and the fact that this tree also deposits a lot of leaves every autumn which collect overthe pathways and my drive and garden and against my front door is another problem which a pollard would erradicate
