Wouldn't it be lovely if the 5,000 referred to in the second paragraph: "In a range of initiatives to boost tree planting, the Mayor is opening up funding bids for 5,000 more street trees as part of his pledge to plant 10,000 new street trees by 2015." all come to SE1 since we're losing the 5,000 beautiful mature ones on the Heygate?
What a shame they could not go into the Heygate with digger/bulldozer thingys and up-root them and transplant into the middle of the bricklayers roundabout...save them a fortune..and save the lovely trees..
I've just gone onto the website and none of the links takes me to a grant application form. If anyone finds it, can they post the link. We've just had some trees vandalised in our community garden and would love to replace them.
I walked through Tabard Gardens last night and noticed they've planted a load of 'new' trees there. Not sure if they've been there a while but it was the first time I'd noticed them and I pass by at least once a week.
