Ruskin Park, Lambeth

Date: Saturday, February 27th
Location: Ruskin Park, Denmark Hill, London, SE5 8EL

Volunteers Planting Urban Trees

Help us plant  20 standard trees in Ruskin Park, Lambeth on Saturday February 27th. We will be planting 15 trees around the playing field boundary in areas of flood risk to begin replacement of dead and dying mature ash.  Five standard trees will be planted inside the park corner adjacent to Finsen Road to complement street trees. The tree planting will help build the resilience of the park to flood risk and also help restore the legacy of trees throughout the park, particularly the aging ash and horse chestnut trees around the playing field area.

You will be sent a confirmation email once your place has been secured.

Volunteer places are limited for some our community planting events, so if you have signed up and are no longer able to attend, please contact our Community Engagement Coordinator, Jess on 020 7820 4412 or jess@treesforcities.org
