  • The Council’s approach to grass cutting and tree protection management was reviewed in April 2022. Further to this, our grass cutting teams are under instruction to leave a 0.5m circle around tree bases to create a safe buffer regardless of the size of the tree, to prevent mechanical damage. The uncut buffer zone also provides insects a natural habitat and is based on the Bromley Council biodiversity policy and new wildlife friendly vegetation management approach implemented across Bromley’s verges.
