Tree overgtown damaging phonelines

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 16:29, Fri 20 September 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

For months this tree has been growing larger and larger and my internet connection getting worse and worse. The phone company says the wires are being stretched and damaged by the tree pushing them upwards. They also say that the tree is the councils problem... help!
