Cut them back; Your say.

MANY hedges and trees are overgrown around my area. Overgrown vegetation can obscure drivers' views at junctions, etc, making judgment difficult. Overhanging hedges could also cause eye and other facial injuries, as I have personally experienced.

Even neat tidy edges that have been allowed to become wider are a hindrance to the elderly, disabled folk and mothers with pushchairs by reducing the width of footpaths. Understandably during the warm, wet summer, vegetation will have grown quickly.

It would help if residents kept the footways free from obstructions by cutting back overhanging hedges and trees from their property.
