Overhanging Tree

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 12:22, Tue 30 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3151358.

I continue to be concerned with the tree and potential for injury and damage. The tree now sways with the wind and could cause significant damage, 4 years we have lived here and to date nothing significant has been done. I request again for the tree to be reduced and again those parts overhanging our property to be cut back.
