Project Completion — W1W Tree Planting Initiative

Marylebone tree project plants 600th tree and wins two Forestry Commission / GLA Re:Leaf Awards As part of London Tree Week, Marylebone locals celebrated the addition of the 600th tree in Marylebone and Fitzrovia.  The Minister of State for Environment, David Heath MP, planted the tree with the help of children from All Souls and St Vincent’s primary schools.

The final tree, a very distinct liquid amber, was planted on Great Portland Street yesterday to mark the closure of the project.  The inner-city initiative aimed to reduce the impact of heavy traffic and make the streets a more pleasant environment for all. Local contributions are now well in excess of £80,000 pounds with match funding from the Westminster Tree Trust, Westminster City Council with an additional £10,000 support from the Big Tree Plant campaign.   The project benefited from considerable support from Westminster Tree Trust and Westminster City Council. The Initiative was also recognised today with two Re:Leaf awards at London’s City Hall. It was a wonderful day in our campaign for a greener Marylebone and Fitzrovia.
