Very overgrown tree hanging over property and blocking light

Reported via desktop in the Public Trees category anonymously at 15:26, Thursday 2 September 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The tree outside 5 Hampden Road is very overgrown (reaching the height of the house) to the extent that it is encroaching on private property (actually touching the house) and blocking light to two floors of the house. The roots of the tree are also lifting the pavement. The issue has been apparent since we moved earlier this year.

Would appreciate if the tree could be appropriately pruned ASAP.
