About Us

The W1W Tree Planting Initiative’s aim has been to line the main streets of  Marylebone and Fitzrovia with trees.

The idea for this ‘local’ tree planting effort originated in the heart of the community – residents and businesses – then joined by Westminster Tree Trust and Westminster City Council, all working in partnership to green the neighbourhood.

The project has now planted over 800 trees over the last ten years.
