Trees are cutting out the light; Yousay IN YOUR OPINION...

IN RESPONSE to Councillor Ron Page's letter (You Say, January 19), I have an ongoing problem with trees which are close to my property.

One in particular is a self-seeded ash tree growing in the communal garden. I live in a top-floor flat and the tree's branches touch the window. My kitchen and living room are so dark when thS e leaves are on the tree that I need the light on during the day. It is a blessing when the leaves fall in autumn.

There is also a cherry tree near my bedroom window which also causes darkness. It has damaged the pavement and when the leaves fall the pavement is extremely slippy. I have been informed that the cherry tree will be pruned and the ash tree felled but I have to be patient and wait; it is not a priority.

I dread to think what damage all the overgrown trees are doing to the sewers.
