Trees

Reported via mobile in the Trees category anonymously at 21:31, Wed 27 April 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Dear Sir regarding the trees at Ox142rd a team or tree surgeons came out and trimmed them and made a very nice job,but this doesn’t do anything to stop the main problem of the ground swell caused by the roots and the danger to the public of a trip hazard the trees are far to big for a housing estate and really need cutting down because they will be causing continuous problems for the foreseeable future maybe new trees could be planted that are more in keeping with the scale of the surroundings many thanks mr v morris
