railings and establish shrub bed by tennis court
Exsiting Oak (2)


         The many oaks and other trees
         around the ground are managed
         utilising a local tree surgeon who is
         called upon to deadwood on a
         regular basis.

       planting (4)


                       New trees to
                       be planted to
                       create screen
                       and wildlife
                       habitat
                       (specimens to
                       be confirmed)
      Creation of wood stacks (5)
                                    Wood stacks are created all

                                    Hogsmill river. The strip
                                    measures 10m x 390m




Wood stacks create a breeding
ground for insects and hence food
source for small mammals and
birds.

                            of their natural life




New trees are to planted
around the grounds to add
to and replace existing
Lower field controlled wild area (7)

                              maintained in a
                              way to promote a
                              more natural
                              environment. No
                              Chemicals are
                              used in this area
                              and grass is left
                              uncut throughout
                              the growing
                              season to allow

                                           22m will be sown with wildflower
                                           seed edged with wild grasses. The
                                           flowers are especially suited for
                                           bees.




Seed bed has been established
without the use of chemicals by
rotavating at regular intervals over the
past year. Formally the land was
overgrown with brambles. The Oaks
pictured were saved during the
process.
Existing tree line (9)




              Tree line between LSE and
              Kings measures 238m and is
              left to grow naturally apart from
              minor pruning to cut back from
              overhanging football pitches.

                                     that clippings etc are rotavated back
