How we deliver these aims

We publicise and raise funds to support Lewisham Council's street tree planting scheme and liaise with the council on behalf of residents We support Street Reps, Area Reps, Tree Guardians and Sponsors by offering initial planting surveys, providing information and flyers and attending local meetings We work closely with schools and community groups to assist in sourcing local sponsorship and creating green corridors We promote and nurture community interest and engagement in street trees across Lewisham. Consequently STfL is now planting roughly 300 street trees a year and will have planted its 1000th street tree this year! STfL will also be planting 200 street trees outside primary schools from now until 2022.
