South side of Aylesbury Road, Wendover - opposite Reddings Close

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There is a rapidly growing sycamore tree on the grass verge between my property and the Aylesbury Road - immediately opposite Reddings Close, Wendover. This tree supports a rampant Russian Vine (I think that's what it's called) which constantly invades my garden, causing damage, and is also growing along several telegraph wires which thread through the tree. There was an attempt to cut it back 2 or 3 years ago but the workmen abandoned the idea because they tackled the job in summer when the foliage was at it's fullest and they could not see what they were doing. The tree is bare right now and the problem should be solvable. The sycamore itself also needs pollarding as, during the summer months, it completely obscures the street light which is enclosed within its branches. If someone wishes to call and inspect the tree I will happily discuss the issue (socially distanced of course). My address is 3 Linden Lea and my garden backs onto Aylesbury Road at this point. I recommend that the problem is tackled before the new growth starts in the spring. Thank you.
