My house is on the border of Sharnbrtok Reserve. This Reserve has no lighting at night along its path, & is only made darker by the inadequate lighting from the one and only street light at the end of Creedon Glen. The branches of a large Pin Oak tree growing right beside the street light ( who would plant a tree that is going to grow to a massive size right beside a street light?!) completely obstructs any light from that street light at night. I have requested attention for this tree before, but CityCare has only nibbled away a few branches, which seems to enable to tree to grow back thicker & taller than before! This tree needs to be removed as it is too close to the street light & the neighbouring Pin Oak tree. I don’t know who was initially responsible (probably the developers) for planting this collection of cute little Pin Oak trees 19 years ago, but obviously they had no understanding of the size that they would grow to be. We even have a Pin Oak right beside my neighbour’s water mains, & their roots have proven to be destructive to the pipes!! This street is too dark & potentially unsafe at night. We have already had burglaries in the street. We would really appreciate it if this one tree could be removed please..
