On the Greenway between Saffron Road and Kings Meadow Lane behind my property (3 Kings Meadow Lane) in the verge next to a stone wall is a ash tree that has grown into 5 main trunks. It has now grown in height to block out light to our garden in the summer. I do not wish to see the tree removed but wonder if it could be pollarded to a suitable height for a tree of its type in that position
