Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 357664.

. There is common ground to the side of our property and a very old tree which you previously cut back to 12 feet some years ago has now died. Branches are falling in to our garden and I am concerned that with the increasing weight of ivy growing on the tree more serious damage could be caused. Please can I ask you consider cutting the tree down. It currently protrudes into our garden so a fence has been constructed around the trunk to fence in our property but we are looking to replace the fence entirely this summer. There are also a lot of saplings growing on the pathway down to the park which have been cut down several times. They are now if a height and density with foliage that sunlight is being blocked into our garden. If these could be cut back as well this would be appreciated. I have attached some photos for reference. I work from home so am happy for you to visit to look at the problematic trees.
