Trees need cutting back

Reported via desktop in the Tree touching building category anonymously at 15:59, Fri 19 May 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4574599.

These trees cause problems. The lady that lives in 271 is disabled and parks her car on the driveway. The driveway is overhung by the trees. In the winter she slipped and has fallen badly cutting her leg on the wet leaves (she needed hospital treatment) and in the spring/summer the SAP from the overhang trees also causes problems as very slippery and also for the car parked there. She cannot park anywhere else for mobility reasons. The trees have been growing bigger over the years and are never cut back. The trees need some branches removing/cut back to save further injury. They are also now starting to touch the houses.
