Having waited 5 weeks, with no updates, I have taken it upon myself to remove the trees from the pavement. There are several holes that now need to be made good. Unfortunately the cause of these shoots still exists. It would be fantastic if you could remove the tree stump. If this was done the area could be tidied up and I would plant some shrubs to brighten up the area.
