The street tree outside 135 lower branches are eye level and overhanging the path and front garden and will soon interfere with the buses passing under it on the street.

Branches lopped so no longer hitting people faces but still overhanging property line.

Under common law, the property owner is entitled to prune any branches that overhang your airspace back to your property boundary. However before undertaking any works to a council owned tree we ask that you:
Contact the Heritage and Urban design team on 020 8313 4516 if you live in a conservation area; are not sure whether you do or not; or the tree has a Tree Preservation Order on it. Some trees are protected so you must gain permission before undertaking any works to them.
Also contact the Arboricultural team on 020 8313 4471 should you or your contractor need to climb the Council tree to undertake the works.
Please ensure that all works to prune the tree are undertaken to arboricultural standard BS3998. All pruning cuts must be executed to a professional standard with no rips, tares, stubs, or other practises that could be detrimental to the health of the tree or users of the highway.
