Dangerous Tree overhanging footpath at 45 degrees

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 15:14, Mon 1 June 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This tree has been reported as dangerous on a number of occasions over the last 18 months. It is now angled so low across the footpath that adults have to duck to get underneath it, and there is a real risk that it could injure pedestrians or fall into the neighbouring property. The other trees along this section of path also need to be assessed.

Council ref: ENQ20866546

    Added the photo taken while dog walking. I think the tree is dead but covered with lots of ivy.

    This tree overhangs my property and is now leaning dangerously across our fence and garden. (It is leaning far more than this time last year.) I have attached photos to show how much of a crown it has, all of which is over our property. I am concerned about the damage and potential injury it could cause if it falls.
