London's Trees and Woodlands

The urban forest provides a wide range of benefits to the economy, society and environment due to its proximity to people.

Our work in London is primarily based on partnership working and delivery of projects with a strong pan London strategic focus.

A key partnership is London Tree Partnership, involving a wide range of organisations and individuals creating opportunities for Londoners, businesses and local communities to help protect London’s trees and increase London’s trees cover.
