Tree-loving residents or groups anywhere in Lewisham can get a new tree planted. All you have to do is contribute to the planting cost and agree to water and keep an eye on a tree for two years.
Alternatively you can get in touch:
by post: Brockley Society (trees), PO Box 63473, London, SE4 9AZ
A group of six neighbours who applied together would each pay only £44. For that they would get:
a choice of location
a choice of species from a range, subject to our approval
professional planting of a specimen of approximately four metres
a guarantee against failure or damage.
Planting takes place in winter or early spring.
Since 2012, over six hundred trees have been planted under this scheme, along with the commitment in principle to fund a further 200.
