Overhanging trees & root damage

I have three large Alder trees adjacent to my property, 46 Wensum Crescent. They have grow over my thirty plus years to sixty foot or more. Branches are overhanging my property & I suspect I have the beginnings of associated root problems.

  • We have visited site and assessed the trees in their location. The trees present are on land not deemed to be part of the highway maintainable at public expense by OCC in the County‚Äôs capacity as local highway authority. The trees are on land that is maintainable by the Local Town Council and not by the County Council. We endeavour to transfer this enquiry to them; however, you may also wish to contact them directly to pursue this enquiry further.

    Many Thanks for your enquiry.
