Overhanging trees

Reported via desktop in the Obstructions on pavements and roads category anonymously at 16:30, Tuesday 26 April 2022

Sent to London Borough of Bexley 15 hours, 16 minutes later. Report ref: 3484026.

These well established trees overhanging into Bourne Road on the perimeter of the ground at the Boys and Girls hall on the corner of Bourne Road/Lesley Close. This is also a bus stop area. These trees have obviously not been lopped back for some time. The autumn of last year these trees shed acorn size seeds with a very sharp, prickly exterior that covered the whole pavement area, becoming hazardous to dogs and small children. This mess was never swept or tidied, littering the pavement for many weeks. Already the branches are overhanging very low obstructing pedestrians.
