Manorway Green is located in north Thamesmead near the River Thames.
Over the past two years we have been monitoring the condition of the trees in Manorway Green Park. In 2022 we discovered that some of the trees were diseased, and we immediately cut down five trees.
A further 20 trees were going to be removed before the end of winter, however after the trees were re-assessed in January this year we found that the disease had spread faster than anticipated. This is partially due to the effects of climate change, as prolonged hot weather spells increased the spread of the disease.
Because of this, an additional 63 sycamore trees need to be removed. This work will be carried out from the week commencing 12 February and is expected to continue until the end of February.
The removal of the trees will have a significant impact on the look of the park so we’ll be planting a variety of new trees that will respond better to climate change and also increase biodiversity.
Planting will take place in early spring and we’ll be inviting residents to help us add new trees into the park. Please keep an eye on this page for further details.
If you have any questions about the tree cutting, please contact our Tree Services Supervisor Rebecca Barton via phone on 07753 431695 or email at email@example.com
To find out about our plans for replacing the trees, please come along to the Thamesmead Nature Forum at Manorway Green Park on Thursday 29 February from 5.30pm - 6.45pm. To register your attendance, email firstname.lastname@example.org
