Height of Tree causing it to lean towards housing

********THIS IS AN OXFORDSHIRE HIGHWAYS RESPONSIBILITY ********* Tree surgeons have attended this tree recently but have NOT reduced it's height. During the heavy rain & sudden storm on 12th Aug 2020 the trunk of this tree could be seen to be moving which if falls is likely to hit the housing in Caudwell Close due to the way it is already leaning causing catastrophic damage to housing. I would request that this tree's height is reduced as a matter of urgency. ********THIS IS AN OXFORDSHIRE HIGHWAYS RESPONSIBILITY *********
