Overgrown trees and brambles encroaching view and damaging garden fencing

Reported via mobile in the Shrubs and Hedge category anonymously at 19:16, Sunday 17 July 2022

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3682690.

At the back of house numbers 13 and 14 there is a tree that is dying and being overtaken and overgrown by other trees, ivy and brambles. The overtaking trees are getting higher each year and the brambles and ivy slowly killing the tree that was originally there when we moved into Taunton Close 29 years ago. We have the additional problem of new trees growing in what was once open space and again year by year these are getting larger and higher each year. The brambles and trees are encroaching on the fences of 13, 14 and 15 Taunton Close. As much as I can to try and manage the brambles at my house, number 13, I cannot keep up with the continuous growth. Could you please maintain the tree and cut back the brambles behind these houses. Thank you
