Overgrown and overhanging tree

Reported via desktop in the Public Trees category anonymously at 10:29, Tue 17 August 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The tree outside no. 6 Worbeck Road is massive. It overhangs the pavement and my property taking light from my house. It causes damage to my car with the sap and is clearly causing some damage to the property. Please can this be pruned or pollarded as soon as possible. The tree has not been pruned for the last 5 years so please can this be done

  • This is an ongoing issue and the tree itself makes up the drain with falling leaves etc. I regularly have to sweep the debris clear from the drain to avoid it overflowing and ultimately flooding my property

  • Despite stating that this would be looked at and dealt with by the 10th December, nothing has yet been done. Please can this be dealt with. It continues to block the drain from the remains of the leaves and is massive. This is impacting my property, the entrance to my driveway and the driveway itself.
