Large branches overhanging the road that appear dead.

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 13:25, Tuesday 19 September 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5009890.

Along the Sywell Road, between Mears Ashby and right upto Sywell, there are a number of large trees which have sizeable branches overhanging the road. Some of them look dead and pose a risk to falling on passing vehicles. I would suggest a tree surgeon to inspect these sooner rather than later. Better to be safe than sorry. I am a qualified horticulturist so do have some knowledge on the subject.
