This is a road hazard

The view of drivers emerging from Hammelton Road is very badly obstructed by the basal growth.

The general growth adds a difficulty in acquisition of the no left turn sign - one driver turned left and had no view of traffic or pedestrians until turned into road.

Overhanging branches down to head height or lower. Pedestrians forced into narrow strip to avoid - social undistancing!! Umbrellas unusable to pedestrians get soaked passing under/through leaves.

Growth is fast, attention to cutbacks is slow.
