Friends of Lewes plants 30 more mature trees, and awarded a new Elm for Lewes

This November members of the FoL Trees Committee made a fantastic start to the tree-planting season by planting thirty mature trees in Lewes!

27 of these trees were planted at Lewes Cemetery on Sunday 1st and Wednesday 4th November, and three more were planted on Mount Harry Road, and Prince Edwards Road on the 7th.

They were also successful in their application to the Tree Council for one of 30 Elms trees made available to celebrate thirty years of the Tree Wardens Scheme. The DED-resistant Elm, Ulmus “New Horizon” will be delivered in January, to be planted at Lewes Cemetery. This is the same sort of Elm as the four planted by FoL on St. Anne’s Hill, in collaboration with ESCC.
