@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 by Glendale and Lewisham Council staff. 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 Lewisham Council 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 These photos below show just 15 of the many dead or dying trees at Mountsfield Park that haven’t been replaced by tree planting at similar locations.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 should be replaced by larger sized protected staked trees rather than saplings or whips.

Urgent petition from Lewisham Parks Forum to the Lewisham Mayor, Cabinet and Councillors

To the Mayor, Sir Steve Bullock, the Cabinet and Councillors of the London Borough of Lewisham
9th February 2015

Dear Sir Steve and Councillors,

This letter is an urgent petition to you from the Lewisham Parks Forum, which was set up in January 2014 to represent all the Friends and User Groups so far established in Lewisham’s 46 parks and other green spaces.  Our existence was well-known from the start to Lewisham’s Parks Regeneration and Green Scene officers  –  and to the Council parks contractor, Glendale  –  yet it was not until we were invited to a meeting on 25 October 2014 that we were consulted by the Council on the drastic cuts in parks expenditure, which have put our members into a state of crisis.
