The street tree (white blossom) in a protective cage outside 1 Greencourt Road, has been vandalised. It is leaning at an angle over the pavement. The tree either needs straightening or removing and re-planting. Many thanks

  • A resident of Greencourt Road reports that this happened yesterday whilst Greencourt Road, at the junction with Willett Way, was closed by Thames Water who were undertaking work here. See screenshot above of the tree and the Bromley Council Roadworks map alert about this road closure. Greencourt Road was open for through traffic by 1530. May be Thames Water can shed some light in whether it was one of their vehicles that did this?

  • Unfortunately the tree that I reported before has blown over in the wind overnight. It is now blocking the pavement. From the photos above it looks like the roots are in tact and this tree can be replanted. It will need to be re-staked as well. This is quite urgent from an obstruction to the pavement but also for the tree if it is to be saved.

    Many thanks

  • Sadly the tree has been removed. Please can it be replaced? I am aware that tree planting does not occur in summer. Please pass my request on to the department and personnel that deal with replacement street trees. Thank you.
