New Woodland for Crab Hill in Beckenham Place Park

Trees for Cities write…2018_12 Trees for cities consultation

Trees for Cities is working in partnership with the London Borough of Lewisham to re-establish an area of woodland on Crab Hill in Beckenham Place Park. The woodland will be planted carefully so it does not block visibility. It will bring splashes of colour throughout the seasons and attract bees, birds and butterflies! Local people will also be able to forage the fruits and nuts that grow there.

Trees for Cities are looking for your feedback on this project. Let them know what you think by Monday 1st October 2018. Your comments will help them finalise the design before planting begins in December 2018.

If you do not know where to hand in this form, please contact Jess via email:  or complete the form online.
