Tree Survive Limited have recently been involved in installing Bird and Bat boxes in Newington Green, London for a London charity The Garden Classroom (TGC) who are a charity and non-profit organisation that provide urban children and adults with transformative outdoor experiences devised to encourage active lifestyles, promote self-discovery, inspire growth and stimulate respect for nature.

We first met The Garden Classroom a couple of years ago when we were asked if we could survey a woodland they use in Kent for their countyside experiences. We have since kept up our commitment to assess the trees in the woodland prior to each time they visit and have also carried out some remedial tree work where necessary.

Common Lizard

Common Lizard - Zootoca vivipara - This little chap was found whilst doing a Visual Tree Assessment on a private estate in Kent. The lizard was with a mate and had been hiding beneath the bark in the cambial zone of an oak tree stump in the advanced stages of decay. The stump provides a rich habitat resource for the lizard and many other invertebrates and saprophytic organisms, all with a key ecological role to play in its decomposition.
