The council has obtained funds to plant 370 new street trees this winter and is looking for sites to plant the trees. Priority will be given to streets with no trees and streets with empty tree pits ready for planting.
If you would like to see trees in your street please get in touch with the Lambeth Tree Service by Friday 11 December – email firstname.lastname@example.org . Up to four trees will be planted in each street requested.
The residents nearest any proposed tree location, without an existing tree pit, will be given 14 days to object to the new tree location.
To plant a street tree costs £450 –to cover excavation, soil, stake, tree and three years of watering and aftercare. If the tree dies within that three year period, it will be replaced free of charge. Watering takes place during July and August for up to five days a week.
