Ivy falling off trees and trees smashed through fenceline

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category by Joe Maskell at 12:31, Wednesday 31 August 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The ivy in the trees is falling down into our garden from sycamore trees on Chulsa Estate. This is dangerous for adults and children in the garden. The trees have grown through the fence line, smashing down the fence and now there is direct access between the back of the garden at 76 Crystal Palace Park Road and Chulsa Estate. The ivy is growing high up the trees and will cause a problem and could fell the tree. Th eivy needs dealing with and a new fence needs to be installed.

  • The trees are on the Chulsa Estate which is an estate managed by Bromley Council, I believe. Is that not right? These are therefore council trees that are dangerous and have damaged private property. Will you come and look please.

  • Can you explain why you haven't contacted me over this and have closed the case. The council trees are still causing dangerous conditions and continue to damage private property

  • Thank you for your comments. The estate is under private ownership and therefore not the responsibility of LBB. Land registry records show that they are updating their records with a new registration submitted for new owners for the site.
