The Friends of Lewes recently planted four trees at the Malling Industrial Estate on Southdowns Road, as part of our Lewes Urban Arboretum project. We thank the landlords, Hallcourt Ltd, for their kind permission to do this.
We planted a Norway Maple, a Wild Cherry, a Swedish Whitebeam and an American Elm, variety Princeton.
We hope that over time these will mature and contribute to a row that will extend along the length of South Downs Rd as far as the planned new development on the corner with Mayhew Way.
We also planted an Oriental plane at Southover School, on the corner of Grange Rd and Southover High St.
Thank you to everyone who helped!
