Overgrown Forest Pines

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 11:53, Friday 26 May 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 4599532.

Outside our house there are two very tall, getting on for 70-80feet tall if not higher, forest pines they have never had any maintenance work done to them. during moderate winds they sway during high winds we are always concerned that they may come down, one leans on the other, if they were to come down or even if a beach was to fall the likely hood is they would land on the house. as it is we have had to replace two windscreens through dropping pine cones. the cones and pine needles are a menace with us having to have our gutters cleared 3/4 times a year, the garden is constantly full of needles and cones which makes cutting the lawn an hour long job that should take no more than 10 minutes. the trees had no business being planted in a town as they belong in woodland. i am hoping someone can at the very least come and have a look at them.
