Tree roots under fence

Reported via mobile in the Trees blocking TV/phone signal or light category anonymously at 19:05, Tuesday 2 April 2024

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5797878.

I have reported numerous times that that I want these trees removed or cut back as they are blocking light, my satellite signal and are very close to my fence. I am also very concerned that the roots will cause damage to the fence. As they are not maintained by the council I would appreciate it if something can be done to remove them. There are no nests and they are not protected. I have already moved my dish twice at my own cost so would appreciate it if something could be done about this. Having no signal for Internet etc is not really acceptable. Thank you in advance.
