The W1W Tree Planting Initiative (Westminster Tree Trust) has been supporting the greening of our neighbourhood since 2009. For the last few years we have advocated for even more trees to be planted in the context of the Marylebone Low Emission Neighbourhood, Fitzrovia Forest and Oxford Street District projects. We are delighted with Westminster’s continued progress to add trees here.
The 2018-9 planting season has gone very well with an additional 63 and 49 trees being planted in Marylebone and Fitzrovia respectively. These numbers include trees sponsored by the Portman Estate and Howard de Walden Estate as part of projects on Baker Street and Wigmore Street. The W1W Tree Planting Initiative (Westminster Tree Trust) also financially supported the cost of this year’s new trees. Over 800 trees have now been planted across the two neighbourhoods over the last decade.
