Answer for Trees

Answered By: 
The Mayor

In my manifesto I committed to embark on a major tree-planting programme across London.

To increase London's tree canopy cover the GLA will work with boroughs and other landowners to identify sites for tree planting in London; as well as demonstrating the benefits of incorporating trees and green infrastructure.

I anticipate that GLA will continue to work closely with public, third sector and business partners on tree planting and greening programmes.
