Dear Mr Kearney
Residents in Coolamber Park have reported a couple of issues with trees in their area. Firstly two trees were removed outside number XX* but bark chippings now cover the grass verge and this will prevent the grass from growing back. Ms XX* has previously carried out her full responsibility for this area but is unable to clean up this mess.
The tree outside number XX* is obscuring the light from the street light beside it and needs to be pruned before the leaves come out in full. Mr XX* has reported this matter already.
As these issues are on the same stretch of Coolamber Park they could be tackled together for the sake of efficiency.

Dear Mr Kearney
Residents in the Rathfarnham area have asked me to bring problems with trees to your attention.
There is strong feeling among those living on Washington Park that the trees have become too tall and are interfering with the wires.
Mrs XX* at XX Marian Crescent has a large tree outside and it overshadows her house, she is worried about it in the wind and she can’t cope with the leaves. This tree is growing either side of the wires and I wonder could it be well pruned to ease her worries
There is a very large tree at the junction of Knocklyon Drive and Ballyroan Road, this makes the path very dark in the evenings.
I realise you have a massive programme of tree maintenance but could these trees be given priority in the Autumn as the elderly residents feel uneasy about them.
