The Emerald Guard is recruiting

In forest dark or glade beferned, No blade of grass shall go unturned. 
Let those who have the daylight spurned Tread not where this green lamp has burned!

Brockley's Tree Wardens need you. Anthony, Nicola, Eamonn & James write:

The Brockley Society's Tree Wardens are keen to raise awareness of the plight of our street trees, particularly as a significant number were felled this summer due to old age and/or disease.

We are looking for people to act as Tree Guardians for their street, reporting damage, disease or vandalism and who would also be willing to look after newly planted trees. We are also hoping to identify people who would be able to donate financially to help in the planting of replacement trees across the conservation area. 

We have developed good contacts with Lewisham Council's Green Scene team, The Tree Council and other significant advisors and consultants and we are looking at innovative ways to increase and diversify the tree stock as a variety of factors (including untypical weather conditions) begin to place additional stress on our ageing but invaluable street trees.

Our new blog is up and running and all contributions are very welcome:
