  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because the trees are not impacting on the highway. After further investigation the land on which the trees belong to is not LCC maintainable. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • 50-60ft conifer tree is not only blocking sunlight from my small garden, its trunks are thick and roots are lifting tarmac pavement...are you able to investigate this please? Address of conifer: 18 Perney Crescent, North Hykeham. There are also 2 wide, not as high holly trees that also block sunlight. IF this is Not your remit could you Please direct me to Authority that would be able to deal with issue?

  • The tree's growth is not impacting on the passage and repassage of the highway. The tree is on land which is not maintainable by Lincolnshire County Council. A further visit to be made to check the condition of the footway, but there is nothing further the authority is able to do. To find the owner of the land you could contact Land Registry at https://www.gov.uk/ government/ organisations/ land-registry Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: not the council's responsibility
