  • Dear Colleague

    My name is David Guile. I live at 16 Southborough Road E9 7EF. The tree outside my house is now taller than my house - you can gauge this from the attached photo by seeing that the tree is taller than the house on the opposite side of Southborough Rd - and also extremely wide. It does therefore impact very negatively on the light inside my property.

    I live opposite Ms Anita Reid who I believe has reported a similar problem to you. I would therefore be very grateful if you could arrange for the trees to be pollarded as soon as possible. Anita and I appreciated that this was not possible while the pavements were being resurfaced; however, this work has now been completed. I look forward to hearing from by email - or by phone - 07956310467
