Large overhanging tree - branches fallen

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Large overhanging tree outside 1 Haywards Close, in Wantage. The tree has many branches looming several metres over the wall into our back garden, and a few weeks ago due to the heavy winds; branches fell, knocked and broke some ornaments.

As such, I don't feel that safe in windy weather near the tree.

One of your team members was working on 3 large trees on the same road on Monday 13th July, but missed this one.

When a team member is available - can they trim some branches on the tree to make it safer please. Recently it has been very windy, and would be great if you could assign someone to look at removing a few branches please.

Thanks -- photos attached
