Background to the Awards

The London Tree & Woodland Awards have been held since 2008 to celebrate the work of individuals, communities and professionals to protect, improve and expand the capital’s tree and woodland cover, and to inspire others.

“The Awards help raise awareness of the fantastic work taking place in London. I hope they inspire others to plant and manage trees that help ensure the capital remains one of the most attractive cities in the world to live and invest in ” – Craig Harrison, Forestry Commission London Manager
