Overhanging trees

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 10:01, Thu 28 November 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Overhanging trees covered in ivy. The ivy is causing the branches to break and fall on to the road which is potentially dangerous. Especially bad between the junctions with the roads going to Chadlington and Sarsden. Worst trees are on the right hand side heading away from Chipping Norton. Potential that the trees could fall completely.

Council ref: ENQ19848944
