Bromley will only undertake works to a tree for an identified health & safety or highway obstruction issue. Please note that as outlined in our Tree Management Strategy Tree management strategy - Foreword - Tree management strategy - 2023 to 2027 (bromley.gov.uk)
The Council will not prune trees in relation to the following: • Branches overhanging properties • Where a tree is thought be overly large • Interference with satellite, TV or other media reception • Branches and/or limbs in physical contact with telephone wires • Excessive leaf fall • Fruit fall • Problems associated with pollen • Excreta caused by insects or birds • Obstruction of view • Lack of light.
The situation will be reviewed cyclically as part of our programme of tree condition surveys and safety inspections.
