Overhanging brambles and tree branches touching property on both the entrance walkway and the back of the property from a large cherry tree.

Reported via mobile in the Tree touching building category anonymously at 14:56, Tuesday 16 May 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4561665.

Brambles and tree branches touching property causing obstruction to the entrance walkway located at the front/side of the property. Large cherry tree located at side/rear or property that's touching property and also extends over entire garden into next-doors garden. I have tried to include more images but there's a maximum of 3 so unable to show more details. Issue has been present for the last 3 months and is an ongoing problem every year so a routine maintenance of the wooded area next my property would help keep the growth under control and also help with the cosmetic look of the property and surrounding wooded area. I cannot attempt to remove myself as I do not feel it is safe to do so and the density of the brambles would make using standard gardening equipment useless. I am concerned that the growth is causing damage to my property and also obstructs visitors and causes a lack of natural sun to the rear windows of the house and garden.
