The Mayor

We collect information annually from RE:LEAF partner organisations about their tree planting activities in London, as well as keeping track of trees planted through GLA funded programmes such as Pocket Parks and the Mayor's High Street Fund. It is estimated that approximately 400,000 trees have been planted in London by the partnership since 2011, including 20,000 street trees.  The new website will be updated to reflect this.

In addition to the information we collect on the activities of the partnership many more trees will be planted by other landowners and managers including London boroughs, Registered Social Landlords, and on private land.
