    Weʼve raised £2,625 to Replace eight trees on Longmead Avenue BS7 that are being felled due to disease and others in the Bishopston area.

    Funded on Thursday, 1st March 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Let’s keep Bishopston bursting with colour...

    Update: *** With your help we've raised enough for our eight trees and the forms have been sent to the council and we should see them by the end of March 2018 :-) We also have enough for a ninth tree and we've nearly enough for a tenth!! Currently we're £110 short of that tenth tree, so I'm going to raise the total and see if we can get to number ten! ***

    I'm proposing to replace a tree on Kellaway Avenue (near to Longmead) and if we get number ten, maybe on Gloucester Road?

    Sadly eight trees on Longmead Avenue are being felled due to disease. Part of what makes our area and road so lovely are all the beautiful trees. As with many things, the council have no funding to replace the trees and are encouraging sponsorship. A group of Longmead residents thought it would be great to club together to replace the trees, but at a cost of £295 per tree, the cost is more than we’d envisaged. With over a 100 houses on our road, if everyone could find a little, we’ll raise enough to replace these eight beautiful trees in no time!

    You can find out more about sponsoring or adopting a tree by taking a look at and For all other information please look at the notices on the affected trees.

        Do we have a choice of which trees get planted?
