Lewisham Council Awarded Funding for 75 Street Trees / by Justin Hannemann

Lewisham Council has been awarded funding of £18,000 towards the replacement of Street Trees in the Borough from the Greater London Authority. This represents an additional 75 trees, assuming that we can find local residents that are interested in watering them.

Since 2013, there are over 2,000 street trees in Lewisham that have fallen due to old age, disease or extreme weather and never replaced due to reduced Council funding.

In Hither Green, we have lost over 200 in the same time and the number is growing.

You can help reverse this tragic trend by pledging your support to raise funds or awareness by contacting Hither Green Trees here.
