Question

Following on from your  pledge to plant more trees in London.  It seems that Hendon Central has been  given  attention whereas West Hendon  has been completely ignored. Will you  correct this by  planting  trees on TfL's A5 road starting from West Hendon   up to  the Hyde in Colindale.

The A5 Edgware Road in this area is not part of the Transport for London Road Network.

Barnet have secured 72 trees from the Mayor's Street Tree Initiative (MSTI) in 2014/15. This is in addition to the 20 which were planted in 2013/14. The MSTI encourages applications for street trees in areas with low canopy cover and/or where trees can improve air quality. However it is Barnet's decision, in consultation with residents and businesses, about where the trees are planted. The 72 trees should be planted in January and February 2015.
