Phase 2 of the W1W Tree Planting Initiative contributes further to the ‘greening of Marylebone’
We are delighted to announce the completion of the W1W Tree Planting Initiative’s project to bring trees to Weymouth Street. Over 50 chanticleer pear trees now line both sides of Weymouth Street – all the way from Marylebone High Street to Great Portland Street. This marks the extensive return of trees for the first time since Weymouth Street was laid out in the mid to late 1700’s.
This is a wonderful result which will shared by the all the community for many years to come. Furthermore, the achievement encourages us to work harder for more trees on Bolsover and Great Portland Street.
The Weymouth Street planting was made possible by the generous contribution and support from area residents, local businesses, Westminster Tree Trust, Westminster City Council, Groundwork London and the London Tree and Woodland Grant Scheme.
We would like to thank Carl Upsall, Chairman of the Marylebone Association, for all his support for this endeavour. Please see Carl’s helpful comments in the documents shown below titled Woodman, woodman, spare that tree! and Keeping Green.
