Various young trees wilting

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4612697.
Many saplings have been planted in Village Green avenue and due to lack of rain over last 3 weeks many are wilting badly. They need to be watered. Otherwise all that money spent on planting will be wasted

Last week, our watering crews began watering each newly planted trees 50 litre of water filling the green bags around each tree. They have not been to every tree yet, but are working to ensure trees are watered.
If you are able to help, that would be most appreciated!
We kindly ask all residents who are willing and interested to water trees in addition to our crews who water them in the summer. Please take all required precautions if you chose to also water the trees. The extra water will ensure their best chances of survival and good growth.

Our aim is to establish a Forest of Street Trees through the LBB Treemendous Project over the next 5 years and we kindly appreciate the tree care given by residents to ensure every tree is established well and can grow to maturity.
