Reported via mobile in the Trees category anonymously at 12:55, Sunday 4 June 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This tree is constantly causing problem for our drive and vehicle parked on the drive. They are constantly covered in sap and broken branches every single. My vehicles have to be washed every day so they can driven. The sap is starting to cause problems with the paint work on my vehicles. the drive is covered with very sticky sap which i have tried to was away but within a day its back again. the sucky substance is then walked into the house which causes another problem. Is there any chance of removing this tree Please. Regards.

  • Hello, this is not the person who submitted the report, but I am a local resident. I wanted to say that I disagree very strongly. We need MORE trees, not less. Trees help counteract pollution (this is close to a very high-traffic road), provide habitat for wildlife, and also help with keeping the area cool in the summer heat. Removing a tree simply to help keep cars shiny and clean would be utter madness.
