- Conkers are dangerously dropping over the footpath and road - Leaves are making a mess across the road - Tree is hanging towards the road
Is it possible to either cut down this tree or alternatively chop off the branches which are over hanging causing a hazard.

New Update: Resident is adamant that the tree does not belong to them and that it actually belongs to the council, so would appreciate if this tree could be removed to avoid any further damage to the roads and vehicles, but most importantly Pedestrians walking underneath. This tree is hanging over the public footpath and roads which does belong to the council and is creating unnecessary mess.

Thank you for your enquiry, I have visited site and inspected the trees & vegetation as described in the enquiry. The vegetation present appears growing beyond the area that OCC maintains and is therefore deemed to be an adjacent boundary feature. OCC, as the local highway authority, maintain the HMPE (highway maintainable at public expense) from boundary feature to boundary feature. As such the vegetation present is maintainable by the adjacent property/land owner, and not the county council, to maintain as they wish. Should you require a more detail on this matter, please contact our highway records team at: email@example.com
