Report: tree root damage

17:00 Jul 11 2018 Near 3, Shielmartin Road,Sutton

there is a sycamore tree on the path outside no. 3 Shielmartin Road, Sutton.Its roots have caused considerable damage to the footpath,with cracks radiating in all directions. Recently,two of the larger cracks were filled but this is no remedy to the overall problem.A good deal of the root system is now above ground and further cracks reach out to my boundary wall. The permanent solution is to remove the tree,which is over grown and quite ugly,being out of scale in this residential road.
The recent remedial works are akin to treating a serious fracture with a bandaid and are no answer to this problem.
