Woodland needs pruning. Trees with dead branches, branbles overgrowing fences.

I have complained about the state of the woodland many times. Even having spoken to people who work on behalf of Bromley who have been carrying out works in the woods. They all have agreed with me. It is densely overgrown neighbouring our properties. And while there is no longer the right to light law, these huge unkempt trees are causing damage to the fences and gardens. I personally do not own my home, so am finding I am stuck in the middle between my landlord and the council. The council won't prune the trees, the landlord won't fix the fencing until the trees are sorted and I can't afford the £700 qouted by a tree surgeon to solve this situation. Surely it is Bromley councils job to maintain and look after the trees in public woodland? We have lost garden furniture due to the acorns falling and smashing the glass top also. Also the amount of mess the trees create in the autumn and winter months with the leaves falling is ridiculous... and again I am supposed to dispose of all those leaves.
