West Saint Helen Street near St Helens Court, Abingdon

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 07:15, Monday 6 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Two birch trees in West Saint Helen Street near St Helens Court, are hanging low over the pavement and causing a risk to pedestrians as they went by. In the Spring they were low enough to catch my face when I was looking right out of St Helens Court, to cross the road to my house in West Saint Helen Street. Now they are in full leaf, but they still need the lower branches trimming. Someone could sustain eye injuries as the leaves whip around in the wind. I hope something can be done soon to make walking in the street safer.
