email@example.com Dean Metcalfe, 31, wife Samantha, 28, and daughter Scarlett were forced to abandon their house in Nine Acres, Kennington, over Christmas because of the damage.
Mr Metcalfe has now accused Ashford council of neglecting public safety for not chopping down the large row of trees at the bottom of his garden sooner, despite requests from residents who feared for their safety.
The trees stand in an allotment about 3ft from their garden fences.
He said: “Leaving the house at 3am with a petrified two-year-old and a pregnant wife was stressful.
“My wife is really struggling to sleep since the incident and in her condition this is not good.”
