Park trees overhanging garden

Reported via iOS in the Public Trees category anonymously at 13:39, Wednesday 8 January 2020

Sent to Bromley Council 3 minutes later

Trees from the park are growing through and overhanging the fence, causing damage to the fence and blocking sunlight from vegetable patches. Furthermore trees in the immediate vicinity could do with a good pollarding as they are overgrown with ivy and not healthy.

  • This is at the back of 59 Crystal Palace Park Road. I would reckon it's a day or two of a tree surgeon's time to come and cut back the overhanging branches and tidy up the trees.

  • Thank you very much! I have noted the orange marks on the trees in the first and second photos. However, the tree a bit further up the hill in my third photo, which overhangs the garden considerably, has not been marked. Please could you ensure the contractor deals with this one as well? Many thanks.

  • Thank you for your update. Ordinarily the Council does not prune trees away from private properties. The trees that have been marked will be pruned because they obstruct the fence and may cause damage. As the property owner you are entitled by common law to prune any branches that overhang your airspace back to your property boundary.

  • Hello, it's the 17th now and still no sign of them! Any chance you could give them a nudge, please? I'd just like to know when it's going to happen so we can keep the cat in that day. He likes to climb trees. Many thanks, Ali
