The tree has growth at the bottom and needs cutting back

Reported via mobile in the Street category anonymously at 12:39, Sunday 15 August 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2936468.

This tree has grown excessively in the last year. It has growth at the bottom which is dangerous and is obscuring the view for pedestrians crossing the road and vehicles coming off driveways. The main branches of the tree are overhanging the road and impeding buses and large vehicles. The main branches are also very close to overhead cables. The tree also has excessive leaf drop which is blocking the drains below and causes flooding of the road. Please arrange for the tree to be pruned and cut back. Thanks

  • The tree is continuing to shed excessively and is now covering the pavement, grass verge and the road. Residents are unable to clear the debris as we have nowhere to dispose of it due to the ongoing strike and no garden waste collections.
