Tree roots lifting garden path

Reported via mobile in the Tree roots lifting pavement category anonymously at 17:11, Sunday 7 August 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Hi. The roots from the tree outside our house appear to be lifting our garden path to the extent that the gate can no longer be shut. The same tree also appears to be lifting the pavement and part of the road. Is there anything that can be done to fix this?

We really love the tree and in no way are suggesting it should be removed (as there aren’t enough trees in the street anymore as it is due to everyone having drives). I’m wondering if it’s possible for you to somehow prune the roots (if that’s a thing?) and ideally repair the damage to our property.

It’s worth noting that the damage is also very close to the water pipe serving our property, so damage to that pipe is another concern of ours.

We are number 43 Chesham Rd

Many thanks, kind regards
