In response to a number of residents asking for trees to be replaced, or new trees to be planted in their local area, Bexley Council has introduced a Sponsor-A-Tree scheme.

A newly planted tree will cost the sponsor £230.

This includes the supply and planting of the tree with stakes and tree guard, as well as two years’ of maintenance to help the tree establish.

The Council is anticipating that the cost could be shared among neighbours, local residents’ groups or businesses wanting to improve their local area.

For more information about Sponsor-A-Tree please call 020 8303 7777.
