Cedar Tree (TPO?) St Mary's Church Graveyard

Reported via desktop in the Public Trees category anonymously at 16:41, Sun 19 September 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

I understand that Bromley Council is responsible for maintenance of this church graveyard and the cedar tree and 4 limes are under TPO's. There is much concern about the large cedar which overhangs the pavement of College Road. This recently shed a limb on to the pavement and could do again, potentially endangering a pedestrian. I wish to know when this and the 4 limes were last inspected for safety and when the last time maintenance was carried out please?. The 2 tall limes nearest the church entrance porch are also causing a nuisance to the building. The leaves and fruit husks are constantly blocking the porch gutters. The church is unable to constantly clear these and may well result in rain ingression if allowed to continue without substantial pruning/crown lifting of these trees. .
