Street Trees for Living, Greentalk and Lewisham Council have joined forces to create a new project through the Mayor of London’s Grow Back Greener Fund.
Our aim is to plant 100 full size street trees in different locations throughout the Borough of Lewisham by the end of 2023 with the help of Tree Guardians who can sign up through our platform to adopt a potential planting plot.
150 vacant tree pit locations in Lewisham have been identified based on the Grow Back Greener funding criteria, prioritising areas of:
1) lowest air quality
2) highest flood risk
3) sparsest canopy cover
This project aims to plant the trees where they will have maximum benefit for all the residents of Lewisham.
