  • To give you more details/ The tree in question is a London Plane. It is on the street in front of 465 Kingsland Road. We recently had a burglary and the police mentioned that a contributing factor was the fact that the front of the house was shaded. The tree is blocking out the light so it gives the burglars a chance to hide and bee unseen. They recommended the tree being pollard to help. The tree is also getting quite large and blocking out the light to 463, 467 469 Kingsland Road. Thanks
