Sycamore trees need pruning.

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later

Two sycamore trees are overhanging my property and occasionally drop branches into my property, the footpath and road. A tree surgeon has told me there is dead wood. I wish to prune them back to the same height as adjacent mature sycamore trees. The Planning Service at King George V House have told me the trees are not protected by a TPO or in a conservation area. They say they belong to the Highways department and that I should contact them about any planned works. Please tell me what I should do next.
