Branches are growing over into my property and onto the above wires

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 15:28, Monday 14 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2791033.

The tree was last felled in March 2012, the roots keep breaking through the pavement and now they are coming onto my land I am concerned that they will eventually grow and destroy the foundation of my house. One of the branches over looking the road looks like it is decaying. I have been trying to have the tree felled for quite a few years but I'm constantly told it's not their department to deal with trees. I hope you are the correct department to have this resolved. Thank you for helping me to resolve the issue of the over grown tree on the corner of Dryden Street.
