Friends have done a survey recently of the trees on the Heygate Estate - there are almost 500 mature trees, of a wide range of species. I see no reason why most of them should not be saved - but it will be up to us to ask our politicians to help us. At present I believe Lend Lease require a cleared site.
The huge number of trees in the estate can be seen clearly from aerial photos - compare and contrast with neighbouring areas! If you copy this link into your browser you'll see what I mean.

It would be great if you feel the same to let your councillors and MP know.
Note also that there may well be several years before building starts - chance for the council and developer to get it right.
