Overgrown trees

Reported via desktop in the Low hanging branches category anonymously at 15:51, Friday 4 June 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2768857.

I live opposite a nature strip adjoining Birdhurst road Sw18 1ar.

The grass and trees are the responsibility of TFL. Whilst you do a decent job mowing the grass there is a desperate need for the trees to be cut back (severely so in the case of trees opposite 7 and 9 Birdhurst road. Not only have many branches fallen recently which is obviously dangerous but unchecked the roots will damage water pipes and Birdhurst road

Could you please send someone around this week to sort

As mentioned the tree opposite 7 Birdhurst road is so large it towers over the road. This obviously poses a massive health and safety risk for people walking, cycling or even driving down Birdhurst Road
