Thank you for your enquiry. Please note as highlighted in the Bromley Tree Management Strategy (https://www.bromley.gov.uk/ downloads/ download/ 422/ tree-management) 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 • Excessive leaf or fruit fall. Seasonal leaf and/or fruit fall should be expected and is not a reason to require pruning or removal of trees. The Council will not clear leaves or fruit from private properties but does manage leaf/fruit fall on Council owned footways and highways. Separately, a colleague recently surveyed a number of the trees of Warren road and a number of routine works are in hand to be completed by the contractor for site.
