Overgrown tree

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 13:16, Saturday 16 March 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Hi - we live at number 3 Macdonald Close - we have a public footpath that runs parallel to our property. There are a number of large trees that grow along here - in particular, a large ash tree that now significantly overhangs our property. Whilst they are great in providing privacy, I am trying to establish who is responsible for this particular tree as I am concerned a branch could come off and damage our property - please advise.
