Tree proximity

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 10:49, Wednesday 8 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

I have tried to contact you before in reference to the proximity of the crown off your back the lime tree directly outside tge front of my property. 8 cope road Banbury ox16 2eh.

The crown as far as my underanding goes should be of a particular distance from my house. Large trees should be a minimum of 20 feet away too.

The tree itself is severely damaging the new double glazing of which has taken myself and my husband many years to pay for. Are you going to be able yo find the upkeep of the cleaning from the Sap that has caused damaged and staining already. And also pay to get rid of the wasps that are attracted too.
