Hither Green Lane Street Trees

We are recruiting a Watering Team for the 15 new street trees Lewisham will be planting along Hither Green Lane this winter. Click the link below to see the tree map. If you’re on HGL or an adjacent road, would you consider joining the team?
When Lewisham plants trees the success rate is 75%.
When they plant with community support in place, the success rate of trees being alive after 3 years jumps to 97%.

We need a minimum of 45 people to sign up to (and ideally closer to 60.)

    You’ve just planted Beech trees all along Staplehurst Road and I’m allergic to their pollen. Please remove them as one is directly outside my front door.

    • Dear Sir/ Madam,

      Thanks for this message and your email to the Hither Green Community Association.

      We have neither undertaken nor sponsored any tree planting on Staplehurst Road.

      We have made enquiries with FUSS at Hither Green and they have not sponsored any street tree planting either.

      We have also contacted Street Trees For Living who sponsor the majority of street trees in the borough and THEY know nothing of beech trees on Staplehurst Road.

      So we’d be grateful if you could you confirm the location of these new tees and provide photos.

      Thank you.
