Trees that were cut down are growing back and damaging my wall and encroachment onto highway

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 16:44, Wednesday 11 August 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2929461.

The saplings have regrown and are damaging my stone wall. They are not marked on your map and I have previously reported this but no contact has been made with me since. This was over 2 months ago. The growth is also dropping sap onto our vehicles parked behind the wall. We are not allowed to cut them back as it’s a conservation area. They have also obscured the road which is dangerous to cyclists and walkers.
