TREES

We have been planting trees as part of the Street Trees for Living programme organised locally by the Brockley Society and in particular by Dom Elliot.

So far (2019) we have planted 10 trees which are shown on the map below.

The collection for funds this year is coming along well with very generous donations. The aim is £1350 but now we have over £1500 donated. This is FANTASTIC and AMAZING. The HenBo Collective has done it again.

All the trees are now planted as shown in the map below. The trees need watering for 3 years

Betula outside Hillstead, 12 Hengrave Road, to replace the dead Sycamore - now removed (Betula uitlis Jacquemontii)


The trees have been funded by donations from residents and two trees were funded from a grant from the GLA.

The cost per tree for planting in winter 2019/20 has remained as last year, ie. £270 (£295 with guard). This sum includes an approx 4m tree with stakes, a guarantee against its failure or damage in the first two years, and a label carrying the sponsor's name, or a name in commemoration, if desired.
