Tree branches hanging onto road

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 15:32, Wed 12 April 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4430384.

Between the Vines Close Farm Shop on A31 and the white houses on the A31, on the Westbound lane (heading towards Poole Road) there are two low branch / trunks slightly sticking out towards the road - few cars are swerving round these and also unsure if affecting lorries. If left any longer could fall out onto the A31 which is a main busy road.

Think all the trees need checking asap and anything sticking out removed
