Overgrown trees blocking sun and vie of houses

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 14:43, Wed 18 May 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3534661.

The trees that line Higham Road on the left hand side as you look if you travel from Rushden to Higham need maintaining once again.

This is a recurring annual issue as is normal with deciduous trees they grow back. In recent years the council have stopped the annual maintenance of the trees.

It is requested they are routinely pruned and therefore the excess growth would not be an issue. The trees do not grow in a normal way anymore and block the view of many residents, as the branches are beginning to encroach peoples windows.
