Dangerous tree

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 14:06, Monday 20 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

A large very large and tall acacia tree located on a grass verge area outside of my property 34 Laurel Drive, Southmoor, OX13 5DG is overhanging my property and the public pathway that runs along the front of my property. Some overhanging branches are within 2-3ft of the ground and some high branches are broken and split causing a hazard to and obstruction to people using the footpath. This is a main path to John Blandy primary school and parents with pushchairs and young children are having to come off the path due to the obstructions. The tree has not been surveyed or pollarded/ cut back for many years and needs urgent attention.
