The roots from an oversized fir tree are raising the footpath and causing a potential trip hazard.
I have requested permission to have the neighbouring trees crowned as they are also overgrown.

Thank you for your enquiry. We have instructed our contractors to carry out works to the trees that are impeding the footway at this location. This enquiry also discusses damage to property as a result of a highway asset. As such it is necessary to contact the County’s insurance team to pursue this matter further.
