Trees and overgrowth need cutting back

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 11:10, Tue 26 September 2023

Sent to Bromley Council 3 hours, 5 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5032516.

The trees and over growth behind the crash barrier need cutting back. The vines are taking over and are damaging my fence. The tree roots grow into my back garden, the bank is collapsing and is still pushing my fence! The bank needs reinforcing, ideally the tree needs to be removed as well. I have tried to cut the vine back off the fence but the ground is too unstable and dangerous so I kept slipping. There is also old tree debris left behind from the last time trees were cut back.

  • Collapsed bank below tree is pushing the gravel boards under my fence. I have previously reported this issue. I will seek compensation for a new fence should this not be resolved.

  • Due to three recent storms which has resulted in a high volume of tree related emergency callouts which the teams are making progress working their way through. The storm clear up process may impact causing delays for routine works raised for enquiries. The contractor is in hand to visit site to undertake works raised for the enquiry. Thank you for your patience.
