Branches from Highbroom Wood falling in our garden.

Reported in the Public Trees category anonymously at 08:54, Sat 22 August 2020

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

In yesterday's wind three branches from overhanging branches fell from Highbroom wood (north side of stream) into the garden of #55, while my wife was weeding a nearby bed. Slight damage to fence, but risk of injury is the priority. Clearly these overhanging branches have become a danger and need to be cut back. The trees near the boundary of Highbroom have not been attended to for some time, and are in need of pruning and a safety review. This should include the growth onto South Eden Park Road obscuring the road sign for the roundabout. If access is required I can be contacted on the number provided with my info on this site. (NB I can't select the tree on the map on the web site - it is defaulting to the nearest tree on SEPR)
