Overgrown trees 12 to 16 Maple Road

Reported via mobile in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 14:21, Fri 15 September 2023

Sent to Bromley Council 1 minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4997918.

I reported this on FixMyStreet ref 4944876. Nothing has been done.

Debris from the trees still blocking my gutters and restricting the light coming through the windows.

In my previous report you asked for the location e.g. house number or lamp post number. But at the same time your posts says no action required! WHY when you don't know the location! I posted the picture of the lamppost number tge following morning

Why aren't these trees maintained? They definately need pruning.

  • Dear resident

    Leaf/fruit fall is part of the tree’s natural yearly cycle, the consequence of which can be dealt with by Street Cleansing (Tel: 0208 313 4557) that have been informed of your comments regarding the falling fruit/leaves.

    The falling of fruit and leaves happens over a relatively short period during the course of a year and any temporary inconvenience has to be balanced against the benefits the trees bring to an urban environment.

    Thank you

  • This is ridiculous that you still do not acknowledge the lack of light in the street at night caused by the branches blocking the light out. I think that this was a contributing factor for the burglery in the street. If keeping the trees uncut helps the urban environment then why do you cut trees in Ravenscroft road and Berbeck road? As to the gutters its an additional cost having them cleaned or should your team come and clean them as well. Having the lights on increasing my electricty bill.
