Apparent increasingly acute angle of lime tree in Ridgeway drive

Reported via mobile in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 14:43, Wednesday 22 March 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4346047.

Some years ago this tree was examined because of its leaning towards 157and 159 Ridgeway Drive(BR1 5DB). Since then the leaning of the tree seems to be more acute and we are concerned that with strong winds there is a danger of it falling onto these two properties. It can be seen that there are very heavy branches in the upper part of the tree. If the tree has to remainn in situ it needs to be severely pollarded

  • Thank you for your comments. Lime trees in particular are known for their vigorous growth around the base and lower part of the stem which can cause an obstruction to users of our highways. In order to address this recurring issue, the Council has a yearly pruning schedule that includes every Lime tree in the Borough. We have around 2300 Lime trees on our highways and they all require pruning every year, the low branches are removed up to a height of around 3 metres. The pruning schedule usually begins in June and continues through the Summer until all of the trees have been pruned.

    The tree you have mentioned is therefore due to be pruned soon, thank you for your patience whilst we work to complete this essential pruning work and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by this issue.
