The tree is over hanging my back garden and blocking nearly all sunlight for most of the day. There is a broken branch also hanging above my garden and my children are unable to play out in it for fear of it one day falling and hitting one of them. The tree also drops seeds on my grass which causes it to die and not grows.

  • Question to Bromley council why cut this tree when I’m told you will not cut a tree just because it’s over hanging private property?

  • Thank you for your update. In this instance, the trees are making direct contact with the sheds and fences at the rear of the properties so pruning is required to prevent damage being caused, there are also some dead/broken branches that require removal in order to make the trees safe.
