Large tree overhanging property

Reported via mobile in the Public Trees category anonymously at 09:30, Wed 5 May 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

This tree has been getting taller and larger with the weather we have been having and it is now overhanging my property. It is leaning over at an angle due to its foliage. I am concerned that it may fall down in heavy wind. A neighbouring tree has already lost branches in the recent storm. The tree is also putting pressure on the surrounding foliage which is leaning against my fence. I am concerned that I may lose my fence. I would really appreciate if it was pruned. This tree is located in Crystal Palace park. I am the first property next to St John’s ambulance station. My garden borders Crystal Palace park and St John’s Ambulance station grounds.

  • I received an email earlier today saying that the issue had been fixed. As you can see, there are no differences between the first and most recent photos. The tree is still overhanging my property, causing great strain to my fence and I fear that it may fall and crush my shed.

  • All surrounding trees have been pruned but the actual one that is the problem hasn’t been touched?? It was first reported in May and I am unsure of how to make it any clearer in the photos so that this is sorted?!

  • The works undertaken to these trees are now complete and consistent with the instructions to our contractor and relate to an identified health & safety or highway obstruction issue, please note that works beyond that to reduce the tree size to allow more light, prune clear of telephone lines etc will not be taken as outlined in our Tree Management Strategy (https://www.bromley.gov.uk/ downloads/ file/ 3334/ tree_management_strategy_2016-2020)

  • There have been no changes to this tree, except that it has grown taller, compromising its stability. It was reported a year ago amid safety concerns. It is not to do with any other issue. The tree is leaning over my shed, pressing on my fence. During the storms, I was concerned it would fall and cause a lot of damage. As the tree is located within the park, but very close to my boundary line, I contacted you for assistance. I would appreciate if someone would contact me and explain why after a year nothing has been done.
