Dead tree - branches keep falling off. Needs removing and replacing

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 12:41, Fri 22 September 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5021186.

I have on 3 separate occasions occasions had tree maintenance men this year knock on my door to tell me the tree is dead and needs to be removed. Each time there has been a car parked in front of it so they have not been able to do it, but promised to leave cones to reserve the space so they could come back and do it. Each time nothing was done. We have had large branches fall off, hitting cars and pulling down phone lines over last 1-2 years as the tree is clearly failing. Please can you arrange for someone to remove the tree before more damage occurs. Cones will be needed as people park in the road for the park. Tree outside number 9.

  • We have asked our contractors to remove this tree. LBB Tree officers cannot determine when the contractors will remove the tree or affect if the local residents respect the no parking signs. We kindly ask all residents to comply with No Parking Signs so that contractors can do their work. Local residents may also wish to help alert others in the road when the signs are placed. Please note that two separate crews attend the felling and then the stump removal using specialist equipment.
