Enquiry regarding tree removal
Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 11:57, Tuesday 13 September 2022
Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later
• Please give brief details of your complaint or compliment below:: Please could you let me know why some of the trees in Betts Park have been sprayed with an orange dot? Are they to be felled? If this is the case, will the council be planting a minimum of 3 trees to ensure the park remains a tranquil area for those suffering from mental health and also a haven for wildlife. It was great to see an area of the grass not mowed this year. • What action (if any) would you like us to take?: Next year - not to mow the same area. Any trees felled, can you put the dead/dying trunks in area to create a wildlife habit? Can you section off an area and plant wild flower seeds to create a wild flower meadow - for bees and other pollinators.

Thank you for your enquiry. all of the trees in Betts Park have recently been inspected as part of our 3-yearly health and safety tree inspection cycle. The orange spray is there to just help our contractor to identify the trees that require pruning. The trees with orange dots on them are just being pruned, there are a small number of trees that are due to be felled which are marked with an orange "X", these trees will be added to the planting schedule and replaced during the planting season for 2023-2024.
