Council Trees and Undergrowth Need Attention

Reported in the Public tree requires pruning category anonymously at 13:32, Mon 17 July 2017

Sent to Bromley Council 3 minutes later

I have reported this problem before . This particular line of trees have been neglected for a number of years. They need attention before they cause any more damage. On the road side the undergrowth is growing at an alarming rate and actually overhanging the road. On my garden side the undergrowth has almost completely taken over my boundary fence from outside my boundary line. These particular trees themselves have not had any pruning or maintenance for a good number of years. The trees regularly shed large branches down into my garden and I'm extremely worried about this as my children play in the garden regularly all year round. I have learned that the previous owner a council employee had the boundary fence replaced , trees and undergrowth cut back sufficiently by the council because of this issue so they are well aware of the potential for damage that it can cause.
