Find the Lewisham Dutch Elm

Standing at the southern end of Ladywell Fields, close to the River Ravensbourne, the Lewisham Dutch Elm is one of only a very few large Dutch Elm trees in London, and is classified as one of the Great Trees of the capital.

Sadly, millions of Elms were wiped out by Dutch Elm Disease from the 1960s onwards, meaning surviving mature elm trees like this one are relatively rare, but good news is at hand as the Conservation Foundation is supporting the planting of new elms.
