The Mayor

In my manifesto, I committed to delivering a major tree-planting programme, and that is exactly what I have done.

By the end of my Mayoral term, I will have directly funded the planting of over 280,000 trees, over 100,000 more than the previous Mayor planted over the course of two terms.
