Tree overhanging and damaging car

Reported via mobile in the Public Trees category anonymously at 09:29, Tue 17 August 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Tree between 118 and 120 Palace View is overhanging. It blocks the pavement and a large amount of sap gathers on my car resulting in high cleaning costs and potential damage. The tree needs to be much more frequently pruned or removed.
