Report: Large tree taking light from garden

09:38 Jan 15 2020 Near 105 westbourne lodge, knocklyon

address is 105 Westbourne Lodge, Knocklyon, D.16.

The attached picture is a tree that is on the waste / shrub land to the side and behind garden.

In the Spring and summer time when the leaves are full on the tree this takes alot of light from our garden 3+ hours before we would lose the light if the tree was not there.

Can you please prune the tree down to a smaller height. -- posted via
