  • This Tree is outside our property, 273 Leesons Hill, BR7 6QH. It needs pruning back because it obstructs the view down the road for us and busses. It also needs height taking off. The amount of leaves that it drops blows directly into the area outside our front door, which is a slip hazard for my husband. We are old and my husband is disabled and we are unable to do it ourselves.
