These trees got report a couple of years ago, and 2 people have been to look at them. When the second person came round in October she was told 1 was to be pruned and another to have the crown lifted and the timescale given was 4-6 weeks. Nothing has happen as of yet, please can we take a look at this to see if this is planned

  • Resident has called about this issue. She states that as the tree is now starting to bloom again and as this is a blossom tree, the small pink petals are now going into the guttering and effecting the flue again, and she would like a site visit whilst the tree is at this stage

  • This tree is now in half blossom therefore becoming more of an issue, this is its exact location is directly outside the front garden (on public footpath) of number 2 Duddington close. Resident explains this is a beautiful tree, however needs pruning back due to the blossom causing issues due to its large size at the moment

  • This will be looked into again. At the time of inspection the tree wasn't in contact with the property Bromley dose not prune trees because of petal or leaf fall blocking gutters. Thank you.
