@LewishamCouncil @GlendaleLew @GlendaleUK when will we have our dead and dying trees replaced at Mountsfield Park SE6?

@LewishamCouncil @GlendaleLew @GlendaleUK when will our dead and dying trees be replaced at Mountsfield Park? These photos show just some of the many trees at Mountsfield Park that are dead or dying mainly because of strimmer and mower damage? You recently replaced two strimmer damaged trees in the recently refurbished play area. We really need many more trees planted to replace those that have been lost during the 17 years of the 20 year Glendale parks contract. eg the avenue trees and other important trees in the park. These photos below show just 15 of the many dead or dying trees at Mountsfield Park that haven’t been replaced by tree planting at similar locations. The dead trees need to be replaced by larger sized staked trees rather than saplings or whips.

  1. Last year Lewisham Council obtained a grant from Greater London Authority to buy and plant thousands of whips, plus a few maturer trees, in Beckenham Place Park, a park already blessed with plentiful trees in ancient woodland and elsewhere on site. This planting was motivated by one reason only, the spiteful reason to plant the whips on areas of the former golf course to obliterate its features. Meanwhile, elsewhere in Lewisham, a park where new tree planting is needed and has been promised is disregarded and overlooked. Bravo Lewisham!
