There is a tree next to a sub station that is huge and shadows my garden, the council trimmed it back 13 years ago and it's grown back

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 17:50, Wed 8 February 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4215682.

I contacted the council 2 years ago to come and trim it back as it,s clearly out of control and nothing has happened. The summer is coming and when the leaves bloom on the tree you can,t see my house let alone any sun.

  • The trees in holy trinity church yard.These trees need urgent attention they are either dead or dying. I visit this church yard regularly, the maintenance of the trees is disgraceful as is the church yard. I am holding Bromley council fully responsible should I trip or be hit by falling branches.
