This tree is now overgrown to the point that it hanging over the pavement and into my garden. It is constantly dropping branches, some of which have been a considerable size onto the road, pavement and onto my drive. As my car has to be parked underneath it, some of these branches hit my car. It's only a matter of time before one causes some serious injury or damage. I have put in a couple of complaints about this tree in the last 2-3 years, but nothing has been changed. This tree is now one of the tallest on Dysart Road, considerably bigger than our house and if some of the biggest branches fall they will easily reach the building where they will almost certainly cause considerable damage. I'm also experiencing problems with the sap from this tree. It is covering both my car and house with a sticky coating. This is making it impossible to see out of the car windows, and they have to be cleaned before I can leave the house as I have to back out into the main road, the sap is not easy clean off the car and requires time that I do not have in the mornings. It's also making the ground and the house extremely sticky as well. I would be grateful if you could look at this tree, and probably the ones nearby as they are undoubtedly causing the same problems, and see if can be cut right back. Thank you
