Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 4968941.

Tree outside of number 58-60 Lyndhurst road is nearly the height of the house. The roots are also causing issues as this is bringing up the pavement which is a trip hazard. Please can the team visit and take further action.

  • The tree is not” half the size of our houses,” as you first reported me as saying on the phone, or “ nearly the size of our houses” as you now say. It is actually nearly twice the height of our houses, and blocking the pavement, and breaking the kerbstones. Who knows what damage it is doing below ground and below our houses
