East Dulwich Grove, 211


Species and Location of Trees

T1.         An Oak tree approximately 9m in height, situated on the left-hand side boundary midway down the rear garden.  The tree is very dense.

T2.         A multi-stemmed Horse Chestnut tree approximately 16m in height, situated on the bottom boundary of the rear garden.

Description of Approved Works

T1.         Crown thin by 25% including the removal of dead wood and necessary re-shaping by either removing selected branches altogether or shortening long lateral branches encroaching to the right side in order to help redress the balance.  The height and basic shape should be retained.  It is also important to prune branches at convenient growth points, rather than an all-round reduction or pollarding which is not permitted.

T2.         Lightly thin by up to 15% by pruning back low branches encroaching into the garden.
