Baxter House I have had a problem for a few years with one of your trees situated outside the parking space that has been allocated to me. The sap from the tree absolutely covers my car. The paint work is now being affected and its colour is fading, I have new car I am unable to open the car door when I use my car without hosing water to release the gluey residue and the windows are another story. I work full time and leave to go to work at the hours 7am-19.00 hours and by the time I get home I have no energy to clean my car, as stated on the attachment emails from Transport of Buckinghamshire which will be sent as an attachment. The sap on the car has attracted ants and caterpillars and they get into the grove of my car and sometimes end up inside the car, and this is affecting my family. I have a little boy and he finds these bugs in the car. We pay our council tax and knowing the tree is your responsibility it should be treated for the disease and should be pruned back on a regular base, and I have not seen anyone that has attended maintain the tree in the 2 years I’ve lived there. This has caused us a great deal of emotional stress and money as the car needs washing daily as to not ruin the paint work. We expect something to be done about this ongoing problem I my car from the tree.
