  • Investigation: Completed (No Action Necessary) - North Northamptonshire Highways do not undertake tree works to facilitate the prevention of leaf litter, seed or sap drop in gardens or footpaths. Sap is a sticky substance that’s produced by aphids feeding on the leaves of the tree and there is no practical treatment to prevent this.
