Sap and bird foul onto vehicles

Reported via mobile in the Street category anonymously at 16:15, Tuesday 8 June 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2777668.

We think this tree needs to be trimmed due to leaves, branches, sap and bird faeces being dropped on the pavement, property and vehicles. Also we are concerned about the size of the canopy and the root system going under our properties. There is currently a large amount of bees swarming around the tree and they are starting to enter our property at times. I understand there is a preservation order on this tree outside number 6 & 8 Stephen Road but surely it can be better maintained to eliminate some of the problems that it is causing. Your help would be much appreciated Thanks Philip Church
