Could you provide figures on GLA-supported tree planting in London by year since 2016, including the number of trees planted, broken down by borough?

The number of trees planted by borough is provided in the attached table. Note that the numbers do not take account of size of tree (some programmes planted whips while others planted much larger street trees) or survival rates, for example the high tree planting number in Enfield reflects the large woodland creation project I supported in Enfield Chase. Figures across boroughs also vary due to the number of grant and tree pack applications. Boroughs’ own planting (i.e. that which was not supported by GLA funding) is not included.
