Dying Ash tree over hanging public road and private property

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 09:30, Tuesday 5 September 2023

Sent to Bromley Council 3 hours, 5 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 4959805.

A large and dying Ash tree is overhanging the public road. Long and fragile looking branches reach out with very little new growth on the tree again this year. Tips of the tree have no leaf or sign of life. This could become very hazardous over the winter period if not trimmed (or ideally removed).

  • This tree is outside my fence line and the last time I spoke to the council about doing something about it I was told I can't do that as its council owned and I can only trim branches overhanging my property. Sounds like ownership changes when it suits (or when you can afford it)

  • Thank you for the comment, the tree is on private land and is not owned by Bromley Borough Council. The hedge row that the tree is in is privately owned.
