Large tree branch blocking drive

Reported via desktop in the Public Trees category anonymously at 09:57, Sun 25 October 2020

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Extra large tree branch fallen in storm and blocking private drive. This is the 3rd branch fallen from this tree in approximately the last five years. One was sitting on my daughters car, one on the pavement and this one was the largest and fell across the drive. Could a tree surgeon look at the two precarious large branches that look to be the next to fall as somebody could be seriously hurt.

  • The fallen branches have now been removed from the drive but no action has been taken for the two branches that are oversized and out of proportion to the rest of the tree and leaning on the telephone cables. Could you please trim these branches before they fall and damage anyone or anything. As mentioned in my previous message, this has happened 3 times now.
