Answered By: 
The Mayor

Written response from the Mayor We have requested tree data directly from local authorities and will continue to do so.

However, the only complete datasets on trees planted by local authorities that we can guarantee to collect on an annual basis are those directly funded by mayoral initiatives, such as the Mayor's Street Tree Initiative or Local Implementation Plans (LIPs).
