Overhanging and over grown trees

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 10:10, Saturday 14 May 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Good Morning, I live at 1 Paddocks Close NG166JR. (Incidentally it is by far the best way to access the land.) My rear garden is overhung along half it's length by mainly Sycamore Trees. These are causing debris and loss of light in my rear garden. I have "pruned" several times over the years however at 75 I am a somewhat reluctant to clamber up a ladder with a chain saw! I have also "borrowed " part of the land,and in one area I have made a veggie garden, in the other area I am gradually planting wild flowers and bluebells. I hope you don't mind. Would you please arrange for one of your teams to do some fairly heavy pruning in the not too distant future. Many Thanks....Keith Armishaw. 07900 984634
