Mature Ash tree, roots lifting tarmac path. Shrubs growing over footpath

Sent to Warwickshire County Council less than a minute later

There is a mature Ash Tree in the verge next to the road and footpath that is far too big for its location. The canopy is nearly touching the roof of the first house and the root system is lifting the tarmac footpath, causing a possible trip hazard and possible problems with water main and gas main pipes, that run underneath the footpath. There are two separate shrubs in the verge- one in front of the tree and one in front of my house a bit further down the footpath. They are very overgrown and the first one has reduced the footpath width by nearly half which is causing a trip-hazard. They need severely cutting back to clear the footpath and also reducing in height.
