Stake supporting a young tree removed too soon

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later
Earlier today the Council removed the protective wire netting and supporting wooden stake beside a recently planted new tree outside my house, 71 Park Avenue. I think the wooden stake should have been left in as the tree is still very young and the trunk which measures only 7 inches in circumference is bending noticeably, even in the light breezes of today. It would be a shame and a waste of money to see this lovely tree damaged by wind especially as it was a replacement for another young tree which died.
