The London Tree partnership

The London Tree Partnership meets quarterly and aims to protect the capital's trees and encourage individual Londoners, businesses and organisations to plant more trees. The Mayor also wants to protect London's woodlands and associated wildlife and make London a greener, more attractive city.

London’s population continues to grow, reaching 8.6 million in 2015. It is important that we continue to plant trees and improve London’s green spaces. The aim of the Mayor and the London Tree Partnership is to increase tree cover in London by 10 percent, from 20% to 22%.
