HS2 Ltd have set up a Camden specific Tree Panel which includes community and local council representatives. HS2 contractors are required to report to the Panel prior to the removal of any tree and to justify why a tree has to be removed. HS2 Ltd is committed to replace the same number of trees that are lost in the London Borough of Camden.

In terms of specific tree species, such as the London Plane, a detailed understanding will be provided through site surveys. HS2 Ltd have instructed its contractors to undertake such surveys but accurate figures cannot be established until HS2 have completed their detailed design for the works.
