Near 42 Arden Road, Crawley, RH10 6HR
West Sussex - Furnace Green Ward
I spoke to Tree Officer who was visiting Arden Road last week and showed him the Oak Tree which is very overgrown and nearly touching the property as shown in the attached photo, he advised me to complete this form regarding the tree and said he would check his records when he went back to the office to see when last cut.<br/>Holly Tree Surgeons were the appointed Tree Surgeons by West Sussex County Council the last time the branches were cut , they advised us as it was a large mature tree it needed regular maintenance, they did cut the branches back on all the Oak Trees on the footpath.<br/>We did ring two years ago and asked for someone to come and look then, the branches are overhanging our property and one branch nearly touching the gable end.<br/>Another tree at the end of the drive is too large for the grass verge and very overgrown with the roots now growing under the tarmac path and going under the brick drive.<br/>It does say on the West Sussex County Council :-<br/>The vast majority of tree work we carry out is for safety reasons and falls into these categories:-<br/>Damage or prevention of damage to properties where there is evidence that the tree is likely to cause damage) image 2
