Tree outside 80 Maxwell Road

Reported via desktop in the Overhanging branch/tree category anonymously at 19:46, Fri 26 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4601274.

We have a very large tree opposite our house on a small verge between our house and the main part of Maxwell Road (please see Front Garden 1).

Unfortunately, , although it does provide a nice level of privacy from the road, this tree is now causing some issues and needs trimming:

It is now large enough to cause a significant reduction in the light that enters our front living room, which is making the room particularly dark It is now large enough to, on occasion, impact our TV satellite signal It has now started to come over the small access road to our house (& our neighbours) and will only get worse if not cut back (please see Front Garden 2) Now that the tree is coming over the access road, debris is now completely blocking the drain on the access road. The road is prone to flash flooding which, although has never impacted any of our neighbours, would benefit from a drain in full working order to ensure this does not become an issue The access road has seen significant warping and degradation, which I would expect are due to root damage underneath the road (please see Front Garden 3)
