Between October 2017 and March 2018, the Mayor’s Greener City Fund supported the planting of over 25,000 trees across London. This included 10,000 trees as part of our free community tree packs, in partnership with TCV, and over 15,000 trees through the first round of Community Tree Planting Grants.
The 27 completed projects funded by the Community Tree Planting Grants:
- were awarded over £360,000
- involved over 1,500 adult volunteers and over 1,400 children
- will add over 6.6 hectares to London’s tree canopy as the trees grow
Projects included creating new woodlands, planting avenues and other features in parks, tree planting in schools, and creating new community orchards on housing estates.
Find out more about each project below, or explore our Greener City Map to see all the projects we are funding. More tree planting projects will take place from October 2018 to March 2019. The next round of Community Tree Planting Grants will open for application in spring 2019.
