Tree branches hanging over back garden

Reported via mobile in the Tree touching building category anonymously at 17:20, Tue 5 July 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3652049.

There are a cluster of large and very tall trees directly behind my garden. Over the years this has caused a) much of the sunlight to be blocked causing the garden to be far more shaded than wanted or needed b) our garden to become heavily littered with leaves and seeds particularly in autumn. It has been difficult to keep seedlings from growing in the garden to the point where taking them out has meant ripping up the concrete and laying new patio; a spenditure I would have much rather have avoided and c) concerns that one or more of these trees may eventually end up falling on the park fence and damaging it as has previously happened just 20 meters along(roughly 2.5/3 years ago). The fence in question still has not been fixed.
