Public tree requires pruning
Reported via mobile in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 09:49, Wednesday 20 September 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro
Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5012713.
The branches of the public tree located in the pavement outside number 62 are pushing on the suspended telephone/ broadband cable. This is particularly the case when it is windy. This is stretching the cable and risking damage to it, which if should occur would leave the property with no telephone or broadband - depended on for everyday working and for emergencies as there is no mobile signal in the area. Please can the tree be pruned before the weather turns further for winter.
