  • Thanks for raising this report, there are 2 trees i would like to discuss. The first one is closest to the road, just through the gate to the stream, this one is very tall and its bows overhang my property. This tall tree I'm concerned about primarily for safety reasons and would like its height significantly removed. The second tree is about 10 meters down from the road and is not as tall, this tree blocks the light from my garden, it appears to be a self setting tree and i would very much like it also significantly reduced in height, if not completely removed. Many Thanks, Nick
