Street Trees for Living (STfL) began as a small sub-project of Brockley Society in 2011. It has developed as an outstanding initiative since then, working in partnership with Lewisham Council’s Green Scene. By Easter this year new street trees had been planted in most of Lewisham’s wards, a grand total of 800 trees since 2012. Local residents and businesses have provided most of the funding, along with commitments to water the trees for their first years. Local assemblies have also made generous grants.

Brockley Society is proud to have incubated and invested in such a worthwhile project and we are now delighted that on 20 May 2020, we and STfL’s trustees signed a handover agreement transferring all assets and responsibilities relating to the project to the new, independent Street Trees for Living, Charity No. 1185165,

Please join us in congratulating STfL and wishing them all the best in their independent life. We invite you to continue supporting their work or to look at it for the first time. We look forward to continued cooperation.
