The over Hanging Branches towards my drive with cherries in every summer time thus caused to stained my new car Bonnet and also on my drive way Located just outside my house 9 Aviemore way BR3 3RP thank you for your attention
Thank you for your enquiry. Leaf/fruit fall is part of the tree’s natural yearly cycle, the consequence of which can be dealt with by Street Cleansing (by reporting such issues to us via The Council's website: https://www.bromley.gov.uk/ downloads/ download/ 422/ tree-management) that have been informed of your comments regarding the falling fruit/leaves.
The falling of fruit and leaves happens over a relatively short period during the course of a year and any temporary inconvenience has to be balanced against the benefits the trees bring to an urban environment.
Therefore on this occasion the Borough will not be able to undertake the works that you request of us.

• Fruit fall: this is a seasonal problem and residents are expected to clear any fruit falling on their properties themselves. Fruit fall on the highway will be addressed through our street cleansing regime.
