The large Oak tree in Valentine Avenue allotments overlooks my house / garden 9 Hurst Springs. It has become very large and hasn't been cut back for some years. I am getting a lot of dead branches fall into my garden. The tree is also cutting out a lot of afternoon sunshine to our garden. The tree also seems to be gradually leaning over towards the adjacent gardens and entrance driveway to the allotments, I would like the tree cut back considerably

    I have just noticed that there is a hole right through the tree and the bottom of it looks like it is rotting. I have not had an update on what you are intending to do with this tree. In my opinion it is an accident waiting to happen and should be taken down
