URGENT - Tree in front of my house on the footpath needs drastic cutting to reduce in size.

Reported via desktop in the Damage - general (Trees) category anonymously at 18:09, Tuesday 11 May 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2719976.

The tree is in front of house, 129 Chertsey Road, TW1 1ER. It is overgrown. When there are strong winds, gales or weather is stormy, the tree sways from side to side and I never know when it's going to collapse on my house. At night I can see the reflection of the tree through my curtains, swaying very heavily. it disturbs my sleep as I'm constantly watching it night after night. I have reported this problem to Richmond Council several times. It is only now that they have communicated to me to contact you. The tree needs cutting down to half it's size. Now is a good time to cut it before the tree gets covered in full grown leaves, concurs and flowers. I am desperate that you address this problem for my health problem. I look forward to hearing from you shortly. Thank you.
