Tree on Walden Road (outside Emmaus)

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The tree on the pavement, immediately outside Emmaus, is badly in need of pruning. It is shedding a lot of apples, leaves and so on and causing huge mess onto the pavement and to the house nearby. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could give it some attention. Thank you.

  • Tree outside Emmaus Walden Rd has still not be pruned and is causing a terrible mess with fallen leaves & fruit . Branches are encroaching onto the property Emmaus.

    The leaves from the trees on Walden rd are causing a terrible nuisance. The paths are more or less unuseable due to the leaves . They are slippery and it is only a matter of time until someone falls and they cause an accident. The leaves from the paths have not been cleared / cleaned for months . The paths on Walden rd especially Elmstead Lane end need to be swept as a matter of urgency .
