Sadiq Khan planting a tree with children in Waltham Forest.

Tree planting grants 2016-17

Mayor Sadiq Khan promised in his manifesto to plant more trees across London, working with businesses and the public sector. 

London's already a surprisingly green city - about 20% of the capital is covered by trees. However, some parts of London are short of greenery.

Planting trees could make these areas look and feel more pleasant to people. Trees can also help protect London from climate change.

Sadiq provided £750,000 of grant funding to plant trees and woodlands in London. All the projects were completed by the end of March 2017, except for the tree planting in Lambeth and The Conservation Foundation's 'Trees In Sacred Spaces' project which will be completed by March 2018.

We funded projects that:

  • created new woodlands
  • planted trees in public spaces
  • planted groups of trees in parks and green areas
     

We funded 29 projects to plant around 41,000 trees between January and March 2017.
