Tree is too big and overhanging the footpathh

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 18:44, Friday 22 September 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5022591.

This particular tree has become too big for the area it is in. At a minimum it needs pruning as it is overhanging the path. In general it is too big for where it is located. It is next to houses and is becoming very tall. This area is always seriously affected in the storms and many houses loose fences and roof tiles when it is very windy. I am concerned that in high winds this tree could become a serious issue to the houses next to it. Also, as the tree gets taller, the roots get wider and could affect surrounding properties and undermine walls, driveways and the 2 green communication boxes next to it.
