Vegetation Growing too Tall

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 16:25, Fri 2 June 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4624525.

Self seeding sycamore trees are taking over on the bank & verge (which is already unstable as so much debris/soil & vegetation has needed to be cleared recently) The trees are growing rapidly taller, which poses a risk to our houses on the other side of the road - from them falling from the unsteady bank particularly in high winds/storms. There is already a very large tree further along the verge which blocks our light and makes us nervous that it could potentially hit our house in a storm, we don’t want the trees opposite to eventually pose the same level of risk. Please can they be cut from the top so they are maintained and do not get too tall.
