Over hanging tree close to overhead wires

Reported via desktop in the Public Trees category anonymously at 12:11, Thu 25 November 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

There is a large oak tree close to our property, 6 Downe Avenue that is close to touching the overhead cable serving our property and many others on Downe Avenue. I am conscious that with winds likely to be coming in the next month or so, these could cause the cables to ark and therefore blow power in the area.
