A tree for Station Approach

SRRA has secured permission to plant a tree next to the footbridge on the station approach off Springfield Road. The vision is either a Silver Birch or Mountain Ash to match the trees on the south side of the station.

Does anyone have a tree in their garden they could donate? Ideally it would need to be fairly well grown and mature, perhaps 4m in height, as a smaller specimen would be vulnerable to vandalism.

If we cannot find a donated tree we will need to buy one. To purchase one of a suitable size would cost anything from £100 to £300 so if you would like to make a contribution to the fund please email southdownrise@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance.
