Tree branches over private gardens

Reported via mobile in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 21:09, Tue 6 June 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4640437.

We had someone out today and they cut the branches that were overhanging the footpath but they left the branches that are overhanging my garden. The branches are starting to grow into my hedge and my neighbours trees. I would like them cut back so they don’t get entwined into my hedge. Also there is no street lighting and makes it very dark accessing my property, so concerns for safety is also an issue.
