Tree height

Reported via mobile in the Trees blocking TV/phone signal or light category anonymously at 18:20, Saturday 18 May 2024

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5990861.

Good day, Problem for three years now and previous request rejected. Tree height increasing and continues to blocks the light, grass annually weeded and seeded but fails to thrive. Satellite signal is blocked, had sky come out to property, speed test fine and cannot lift the dish any higher or re-position the dish to improve the signal. Concerns growing when high winds that tree would reach the property should it be uprooted. Cannot enjoy the garden during the rare sunny days I appreciate the trees and the wildlife that they encourage. I don’t want them gone just topped to improve safety, light and signal. Thankyou.
