- Successfully lobbied Hounslow Highways for replacement of dead trees and we were delighed when these were replaced in late January (see below)
- Begun work as volunteers to reinstate tree pits for every tree so they are better protected against mower and strimmer damage. Pupils from Chiswick School have very kindly volunteered to keep the tree pits tidy in 2020 as part of their Duke of Edinburgh scheme.
- Developed a Tree Champion model in dialogue with Hounslow Council and Hounslow Highways for care of new saplings to pilot in Staveley Road and subsequent wider dissemination across London Borough of Hounslow
We are now planning a Blossom Day Street Party in April 2021 to celebrate our trees, recruit Tree Champions, and to raise funds so the trees can be protected in perpetuity.
