Tree behind street sign is overhanging my garden

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 11:01, Friday 7 August 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The tree overhangs my garden considerably. This has resulted in large amounts of bird droppings being deposited in the garden leaving it unsafe for my two small children to play in the garden.

I would therefore be grateful if the Council could arrange for the tree to be cutback a sufficient amount so as to alleviate this problem.

The tree in question is located at the point where the Hithercroft Road in Wallingford turns into St Johns Road directly opposite the junction with Sovereign Place. The tree is situated directly behind the road sign for Hithercroft Road/St Johns Road

I attach photos as requested so as to allow you to locate the tree

This issue has got worse in the past year as the tree has continued to grow.
