Overgrown tree

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 13:58, Friday 6 May 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3506420.

There is an extremely overgrown tree that requires pollarding outside 16 and 18 Addison Road. This tree is dangerous as it creaks in high winds which is concerning and high sided delivery vehicles hit it resulting in debris from the tree falling into the road which is then a hazard and a risk to passing vehicles and cyclists.
