Our story

Street Trees for Living is the new name for Brockley Society's street tree campaign, which started back in 2011. We work in partnership with Lewisham Council. 

Starting with very modest ambitions to plant trees within the Brockley Conservation Area, we have now planted several hundred street trees in over half the wards of the London Borough of Lewisham. In recognition of the significant impact we were making in Lewisham, we were honoured to be the recipients of the Forestry Commission's Community Tree Award in 2016 (see here). We are all volunteers and work with an ever-expanding group of engaged local residents and business all committed to greening our streets.
