Extra large tree for this road. Sticky sap covering cars that are parked in parking bar and also our car in our drive.

I cannot park my car on my drive due to the sticky sap that falls from the street tree onto my car, causing a sticky film all over my car and any leaves falling onto to it from the tree also sticking to the car. Every day the sap is completely covering the windscreen which has to be washed off before the car can be used. We understand that our neighbours are having the same problem. This tree has grown much larger and is different to the other trees in the road. The tree is growing larger each year. Please help us urgently.
