There is a dead tree that is in danger of falling onto my property and my neighbours'. It forms part of your screen of trees and shrubbery alongside the A3 slip road which has become very overgrown to the point that it is encroaching onto our property and we have to cut it back ourselves to be able to use our garages. The dead tree is covered in vines and looks unstable. One large branch in particular looks like it is going to fall off and I'm worried that someone could get seriously hurt as that area is in constant use. I have photos that I would be happy to forward to you. My email address is I do not need to report this anonymously, I would prefer that someone confirms that this message has been received and will be acted upon please.
