Thank you for your enquiry. Please note that as outlined in our Tree Management Strategy (https://www.bromley.gov.uk/ downloads/ file/ 1752/ tree-management-strategy-2023-to-2027) The Council will not remove or prune trees where requests are based on the following issues:
• Branches overhanging properties. Residents have the right to exercise their right under common law to prune back branches to their property boundary, withal arising disposed of by the resident. Pruning should be carried out following discussion with one of the Council’s Tree Officers and completed to the standard set out in BS3998:2010 Tree Work.
• Tree size, where a tree is judged to be overly large.
