Happy New Year Phillip ,

Lots of pruning history here, different lopping heights and reductions...
Considering its location and direct damage to wall/footway do you think that 
this tree should be heavily reduced again to control its vigour.
Or felled and replaced, as such trees which are seen to cause damage to 
structures are often not replaced because of the future risk they pose.

How about this one on attached photo?

TPO tree and no one is suggesting removing tree that is reduced every 5 years.

In Conservation Area

On corner of busy road used as rat run.

95% of roots covered with hard surfacing tarmac, paving and walls, clearly 
not impacting tree.

Roots lifting and damaging wall.

Roots lifting tarmac pavement, potential trip hazard, prams having to use 
edge of road.

Heavy footfall throughout day.

Solution will involve Tree Officer, Conservation Officer, Highways authority 
and tree owner.

All the best to everyone for 2019.

Best wishes
