From May 2016 to date I have directly funded the planting of approximately 285,000 trees. This includes 174,417 trees planted between May 2016 and March 2019, and more than 111,000 trees planted this winter. All these trees will be planted by May 2020. I have also committed funds for another 4,000 street trees to be planted in 2020-21.
Transport for London planted a further 1,838 trees between May 2016 and March 2019, across the TfL road network (TLRN). TfL expect to plant at least 1,000 more trees by the end of March 2020.
I have funded tree planting in every London borough, with the attached table providing a breakdown. The number of trees planted in each borough varies according to the funding applications received, available planting space, and the type of projects.
This data includes all trees planted through my Greener City Fund grants, tree giveaways and other directly funded programmes, as well as trees planted by Transport for London on the TLRN.
It does not include the thousands of trees funded and planted directly by boroughs, environmental organisations, community groups, developers, businesses and Londoners.
