Overgrown/overhanging plum tree

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 15:51, Friday 17 September 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This tree received a bit of a trim two years ago, but is in need of a good cutting back again. It overhangs the square, nearby property and a public footpath. Being a plum tree it drops fruit, which gets crushed under foot to become a slip hazard and pedestrians have also been struck by falling plums. Please could this tree be cut right back over its full height. Ideally, dead branches would also be cut out and the tree reduced and thinned out. Many thanks.
