    My mother has had her driveway re-tarmaced, she has noticed some small areas that have broken up and apparently this is down to the birds that sit up an oak tree and do their business on the drive, the tree itself is outside of her garden but the council say they will not allow it to be cut back, is there anything that can be applied to the tarmac to prevent this from breaking up due to the acid in the pooh.

    FWIW,,, It's not illegal to trim the branches that overhang her land/driveway at all. All you have to do is return the cut branches to the owner (in this case the council). ;) ;)

    If the OP's mother thought she had problems with the bird crap attacking the tarmac, she would certainly see the effect of the droppings on the paintwork.
