The London Tree Partnership

The London Tree Partnership is a network of organisations which collaborate to help protect the capital's trees and encourage individual Londoners, businesses and organisations to plant more of them. The partnership meets quarterly to share information and data, help inform tree related programmes in London and promote the benefits of the city's urban forest. 

London’s population continues to grow, reaching 8.8 million in 2017. 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 per cent, to 23 per cent.

You can read more about the Mayor's tree programme on the tree and woodlands page. Many of these tree planting and woodland projects work with organisations in the partnership.
