Sycamore tree outside 7 Clifford Avenue lifting pavement and spreading over lawn

Reported via desktop in the Tree roots lifting pavement category anonymously at 09:19, Thursday 30 June 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Serious tripping hazard on pavement and lawn outside our house where my 93 year old mother lives. I have seen other users trip and there are a number of elderly residents who now walk in the road to avoid this hazard. The sycamore roots go acros our lawn. We have now been advised that they threaten the stability of the house foundations which we will discuss with our insurers
