Tree needs pruning

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 12:45, Saturday 11 March 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4301161.

I was told 2/3 years ago by our local councillor that the tree on pavement outside No.72 was pruned every 3 years, never been pruned to my knowledge for years! It is far to big branches are interfering with the telephone lines and the roots are lifting the pavement and we are concerned that they will damage pipes underneath. It sheds small fruits which are all on road & pavement and never cleared. Basically the tree needs sorting out or removing!,
