Trees at last - great news!

Many of you have followed with interest our efforts to get some trees planted in Hampton Wick – the village not the ward! See here for previous trees news story.

We recently had a successful meeting with the council’s tree officer and we’re delighted with the outcome.

Not only do we have a number of new plantings on Church Grove but 16 have also been planted in the King’s Field. When mature they will provide some much needed shade. Do go along and have a look – we think they look great! We’ve also spotted one by the post box opposite Hampton Wick Gate into Bushy Park. Have you seen any others? info@hamptonwick.org.uk.

But there’s more: we’ve identified a number of other sites in Hampton Wick which would benefit from more trees. The next step will be for the Council to collect data in the field to plot suitable locations. The output from this exercise will be a report and accompanying map which identifies viable tree planting sites in Hampton Wick. The aim is to have this survey complete by the end of August, with a view to planting in the 2019/20 season, subject to agreement from the respective Council Cabinet Member.

If you have identified a site that would benefit from a tree, please let us know at info@hamptonwick.org.uk – we’ll pass this on to the Council. Please bear in mind that not all sites are suitable due to reasons such as drains and other services, sight lines etc.
