I have found that most people are not aware that Lewisham Council does not have enough resources to replace dead or damaged trees. And most are alarmed to hear that there are no funds available for planting new trees, especially when so much development is taking place in Lewisham. 

Simply by spreading the message, you will have helped to bring the situation to the attention of local business, Government and the rest of the community.  This in turn will promote discussion, debate and bring much needed attention to the problem. 

You can help by;

- Telling friends, family and neighbours about why we need to replace dead or damaged trees and plant new ones

- Reporting any damaged or dead trees to me, Lewisham Council or your Local representatives.

- Tweeting #hithergreentrees, forwarding messages or pictures through social media channels like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or others will help raise awareness and alert others.
