Completely overgrown

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 00:35, Tuesday 12 July 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3669035.

The trees are that overgrown they’re now growing from the roots! The children all play out and run around the trees so parking in bays is hard as you don’t know yet how where as well as unable to park in the spaces by the trees as the bottom of the tree is spouted and damages your car. Ontop of this they are completely tangled up with the electrical cables. Also, wasp season is coming and the trees will soon start to leak sap which will cause myself unable to access my car as I won’t be able to get around the wasps. The trees need sorting asap because if my children get hit by a car it’s your fault

  • What about giving the trees a well earned haircut? They could do with a number two top, back, sides and front too. (Or just completely top them like one has been done on the street. They’re restricting light, over grown cables all on the street and their excess leaves are clogging up my garden all the time. Children are able to swing on the branches of the trees so clearly they need a haircut.
