Overhanging trees blocking footpath Downsview Rd

Reported in the Trees category by Stockham Park Ranger at 08:43, Sat 13 July 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

Having made it past the other two obstacles, you then get bashed on the head by the overhanging Silver Maple branches which desperately need pruning.

As these are beautiful trees, can they just have a crown lift to raise the canopy, removing the obstruction which overhangs the pavement. Please DON'T just butcher them, but get someone qualified to do a proper job.

3 of 3.

Thank you.

  • The pin is accurately locating it: on the south-western corner of the roundabout.

    The photos show it quite clearly.

    The description specifies Silver Maple,, which should help your operatives to identify them, but here's a clue, they bash you on the head as you attempt to walk on the footpath.
