Sapling, post and guard wire pushed over

Reported in the Public Trees category anonymously at 08:45, Fri 21 February 2020 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council 5 minutes later

Last night (Feb 20) a car or person has slightly tipped a newish sapling, it’s post and guard rail. Wet soil I guess. All now at rakish angle. it is on the crescent grass, the north most tree. I’m concerned would damage roots as not firmly entrenched and pole wobbles. It does not lean over road and does not interfere with pavement. (Though the sub category lacks an other) So more about trees long term survival. Thanks.

  • Just reporting this too. Not sure if a person or car is responsible- we have the same issue with a tree in the front garden where the wind has unsteadied the roots and needs stalking with a wooden stake and tie.

  • The weight of the post is pulling on the tree - is it possible this will be fixed before the tree gives up?

  • Due to the current pandemic crisis and in line with government advice to protect the population at large, LBB is unable to action this report within its normal timeframes. This job is expected to be completed within the next few days. Unfortunately the tree has been too badly damaged to retain safely and will need to be removed. A new tree will be planted in its place in the next planting season which begins in November and ends in March.
