Tree FAQs

Who can I contact to find out more about protecting a tree or trees in my area?

IMG_8942If you fear that healthy trees are being unnecessarily removed in your local area, it might also be helpful to contact your local Tree Officer to find out the reasons for the removal.

Contact details for your Tree Officer should be obtainable on your local authority’s website, or via their telephone switchboard.

There are also organisations who are on hand to assist in campaigns against the removal of healthy trees, and you may wish to contact them for advice:

Trees for Cities’ environmental policy states that we do not remove healthy trees. We only chop down diseased, decaying or dead trees. A new tree is planted in the place of every tree that we remove.

The lodge was originally constructed as a ‘Model Housing for Families’ and displayed at the Great Exhibition of 1851 before being moved to Kennington Park. 

The prototype design was commissioned by Prince Albert as president of the Society for Improving the Condition of the Labouring Classes. It has influenced housing design and construction around the world; homes based on this model were built in London, Herford, Warrington, the Hague, St Petersburg and Brussels.
