Sooty-bark disease on dead sycamore

Reported via iOS in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 15:08, Wed 4 October 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5061693.

I previously reported this sycamore tree incorrectly as a dead horse chestnut. It was inspected and I believe plans are in place to remove it. It is now openly covered with spores of what I think must be sooty-bark fungus. If so there is a risk to passers by as well as neighbouring maples. Could removal be expedited please?

  • Thanks for bringing this to our attention. For your original enquiry, I inspected all the trees along that stretch of Walden including the chestnuts which works are raised for. The fell raised for the Norway Maple has been chased up with the contractor and in hand to be completed as a priority.
