Ornamental tree on verge outside 17 Oak Tree Road

Reported via desktop in the Other tree issue category anonymously at 18:37, Sun 29 October 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5150505.

I’ve just walked up Oak Tree Road in the dark and hit my head on the low branches of the small tree that someone has planted there on the verge, a branch tip pushed my hat off and went into my head which hurt. I am only 5’5” and eventhen have to duck under this tree when walk by it in broad daylight, but as it was cold and dark I forgot it was there. The tree is small and the branches hang at eye level over the width of the pavement so please can these branches be cut right back away from the pavement before someone gets injured. Thank you.
