Ash trees suffering dieback overhanging property.

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 16:28, Thu 18 August 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

There are a number of substantial trees adjacent to the property which are displaying signs of Ash Die Back, their form and structure present an increased risk to public and property. The trees are growing on LBB land known as Aspen Wood which is found between Warren Road and Windsor Drive, Chelsfield. An inspection of the trees and LBB targets by a member of your Arboricultural Team is required. The crowns of the Ash trees are now overhanging the property roofline and chimney and will, at the very least, require limb/crown reduction back to previous pruning points, work previously undertaken by LBB. However, it may be worth considering dismantling these trees to ground level this season whilst the are still climbable rather than waiting until they are too brittle and unpredictable to climb. Otherwise future works will undoubtedly be very expensive if a track MEWP is needed to enable this work to be done safely.

  • Following a meeting on site, when I was told that the trees were not suffering badly, today there is this large bow which has fallen on the junction of the footpaths. Luckily there was no one beneath when it fell.

  • Thanks for the update, However I was a little confused when I received it as there was no evidence of any work having been carried out! I thought I’d leave it a bit before I responded in case it was a mix up and the works were programmed in…… sadly not, it is just untrue the works are not complete, a few trees were sprayed with paint indicating they needed addressing, but that has to date been the extent of the work.

  • The responsible Tree Officer will review on site in due course. Please note, crews do not always undertake all the works on the same day at a given location due to a number of technical and logistical reasons. Some works linked to this enquiry may have been completed.
