Conkers Not Concrete – Saving the Horse Chestnut Tree at River Lawn

This is the story of how a much loved Horse Chestnut tree was saved from felling thanks to the passion of the community (Keep River Lawn Green), the open mindedness of the developer (Assura), the application of science and arboricultural practice  (Sharon Hosegood Associates) and the care of the Builder (Jenner).  Local children got involved and made this a real celebration.

Result? Where there's a will, there's a way.

Listen to Johnathan Webb and Claire Rick from Assura, and Mark Hood, tree activist and green councillor at Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council and local children.
