Dead trees and branches overhanging footpath and allotments

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 15:06, Sun 26 March 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4360442.

These trees have been shedding dead branches for years but in the last year it has got worse. I have a plot at the allotment on the corner and I have a pile of twigs and branches gathered from underneath the trees. It could cause quite an injury if a branch landed on someone and makes me and other plot holders near me very wary about going to the bottom of our plots where our sheds are.

Outside at the entrance to Tugmutton park, the problem is more serious as so many members of the public use the footpath, including small children, and those going to school.

Please could these trees be pruned back? I think one of them over the stream might be dead, but I'm sure an expert can inspect it and advise.

I would be grateful if this could be dealt with before leaves start to grow and the branches get heavier, also before birds start nesting.

Thank you.
