Ree overhanging my property by approx 4 meters

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 19:39, Tue 30 May 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4612404.

This tree is overhanging my property by approx 4 meters. It is about 3 meters from the front wall and front door of my house. It is shedding winged seeds constantly at an alarming rate. I have to sweep my drive every day and put them in my garden bin. And the sap is ruining my car paintwork. Also the roots are cracking the pavement outside making it extremely dangerous plus it has cracked my front wall in places.This issue has been reported before over a year ago.
