Barleyfields. Wooburn Green

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 14:52, Friday 18 September 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The branches of this very large tree are overhanging the road and are now actually touching the cars and is making it difficult for any taller vehicles. It needs cutting back. The conkers are also dropping from a height onto the car roofs and will be causing damage. The parking is restrictive at the best of times and with folk avoiding parking under it, it is becoming more difficult. > > I have had an ongoing problem with water overflowing from the guttering due to the leaves which become stuck in there and it has to be regularly unblocked. This also makes it dangerous in the winter when the leaves fall on the ground as it is very slippery. > > Please can you tell me if this will be investigated?
