Overgrown tree

Reported via desktop in the Public Trees category anonymously at 21:14, Mon 6 September 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The tree is excreting copious amounts of sap which is ruining ours and our neighbours cars. The branches are growing increasingly closer to our house and blocking our light. There are broken branches resting amid the tree which often fall down and land on/ near our cars It has been many years since this tree was last cut back
