Highway tree covered in excess Ivy outside 5 Windsor Road.

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 07:34, Friday 11 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2784091.

The street tree is full of Ivy to the point that the tree is suffering. Residents have attempted to sever the Ivy themselves but this needs the attention of a tree surgeon. The tree is at an increased risk of failing due to the excessive weight and increased wind load of the Ivy. Please arrange to sever the ivy near the base of the tree.
