Over growing lime trees outside 35 Main Street, Great Oxendon.

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 18:09, Wed 3 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3102984.

These lime trees have been overgrowing the wall of my property at 35 Main Street, Great Oxendon, for the last six years at least. They deposit vast quantities of leaves onto my drive and in high winds branches fall onto our cars. At ground level, the overgrown shoots obscure the view of the highway as I exit the drive. This is a considerable safety hazard. I would be most grateful if Highways could pollard the trees and trim the shoots growing at ground level.
