I have reported this issue four times to both oxfordshire district council and cherwell district council and still no maintenance has been carried out on poorly maintained trees, large branches often snap off in winds, causing a safety issue to properties and public, i have lived here 8 years and to my knowledge no work has been carried out

We have visited site and assessed the trees in their location. OCC maintains land that is HMPE (highway maintainable at public expense) in its capacity as local highway authority. The trees referred to in the enquiry are on land that is not HMPE. You can access the land registry at: https://www.gov.uk/ search-property-information-land-registry to find details of the adjacent landowner to pursue your enquiry. It may also be appropriate to contact the District, Town or Parish Council to further your enquiry. You are also within your common law rights as a landowner to cut any overhanging or encroaching vegetation back to the boundary line of your property.
Many Thanks For your enquiry.
