Sat 23 Jul: Thirsty Trees on The Green
Reported via desktop in the Young Tree Requires Maintenance category by Friends of Green Street Green Common at 00:20, Tuesday 2 August 2022
Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later
More and more newly planted trees appear to be desperate for water, but there is only so much local residents and Tree Friends can do. Take the three trees photographed as examples of an increasing number on Green Street Green Common and beside Sevenoaks Road. Local residents are trying to water some of the trees within reach, but what about the others?
Thank you for your report, this is now being investigated. Information on our services and the timeframes we aim to respond in can be found: http://www.bromley.gov.uk/ fixservices

Thank you for your concern and efforts to water these young trees. It is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, the prolonged and unprecedented heat this year is having an adverse effect on some of the young trees --even trees planted more than one year ago. To combat this issue additional watering is being organised where possible. We have requested that these trees be added to the contractor's route, but they are very stretched. Wherever possible, simple weeding and mulching around the base of the trees using the grass immediately around the trees will also help increase their chances of survival and growth.
