Tree survey update – results are in! Take a look at Thurlow Park residents’ favourite species…

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our online survey, speak to us on the doorstep or email with your ideas – we have passed on your comments and preferences to the tree officer who is busy checking locations to see if they are viable (in terms of eg wires under the pavement).

While we will endeavour to match the species with the location where they have been nominated, you may be interested in seeing how your neighbours across the ward voted:

Results from our online survey
Thurlow Park residents’ favourite species, with 32.9% of you saying the Prunus Umineko is your top choice for street trees

Last chance to nominate a tree for your street – deadline TOMORROW

We have secure dozens of trees to be planted in February across the ward – and we want your help to choose locations and varieties. 

To get as much input from residents as possible, we have put together an online survey, sent emails, met with residents associations, doorknocked on streets across the ward and delivered flyers to homes near potential new tree pits. 

Many of you have been in touch with your requests and ideas – thank you! These have all been passed to tree officers who will evaluate the suggested sites (eg for wires under the pavement) and will where possible source  your preferred trees from the nursery.

If you haven’t shared your preferences – now is your last chance to do so! The deadline for the survey is tomorrow Monday 10th December. Please let us know your favourite tree varieties and spots across the ward you think could do with some extra greenery, and encourage your neighbours to respond too.

Choose a tree to plant in February

As part of the Our Streets investment programme, we will be planting trees across the ward – and we want to hear from you! Help us to choose locations and species of trees using the form below. Please complete the form by 10th December.

We are working our way around the ward to identify empty tree pits that need a new tree, and to doorknock different streets and ask for residents’ suggestions. If you’d like us to doorknock in your street – please just get in touch!
