Overgrown tree and hedges

Reported via desktop in the Low hanging branches category anonymously at 13:30, Wed 23 June 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2812970.

No on has cut the grass in months a team did bits of the verges a few months ago but never finished. We have had to do it ourselves to alleviate the pressure on our garden wall and sweep it all up. The pavements and lay byes never get swept ! Sections of the pavement are covered by over hanging trees and bushes from residents gardens which you have to duck to avoid. It is far worse further along near the bus stop and the verges are also being used as dumping grounds . When cyclists come you virtually have to jump into the bushes /briars to avoid being mown down and mothers with push chairs are in constant danger. Also the tree outside our property has not been pruned or cut back in years and We constantly have to clear catkins and leaves from our cars. The trees have been allowed to get so big I dread to think what they are doing to the foundations of our house. Please can some one call or better still Meet me on site to discuss this issue I am fed up with being told it is not your role and likewise by Barnet
