End of footpath on Leaside, Conquest Road end of Leaside.

Reported via mobile in the Trees category anonymously at 12:05, Tue 10 August 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 360370.

Tree is completely overgrown, covering the street light. Also overgrown over the road edge hanging over vehicles parked causing Pigeons to gather in the tree and cause mess on vehicles, this causes parking issues because people try to avoid those spaces. This is a berry tree that is also blocking the drain with berries and pips and causing a fowl smell where the berries have dropped. It's attracting wasps and allot of mess on the pathway. The underneath of the tree is overgrown and has thorn type weeds which is awful to walk past. The tree needs cutting back and tidying underneath to make it safer for residents and stop the smell from the drains and the mess. Also to clear the street light so that it's safer at night. This tree is at end of Leaside, lu5 5rf and on the conquest road end of Leaside. It has the garages behind it. These issues are a nightmare every year and cause us residents issues with the berries and pigeons and also the fact it always grows over covering the street light. It's a safety concern and a hazard for residents in many ways. Its also causing the pathway to lift where the roots are so big.
