Planting Season: October 2013 - March 2014
Last year's trees are beginning to spread their roots and grow. 500 volunteers donated their time to help us plant 17,500 trees as part of mass tree planting projects in Redbridge and Ealing. These projects will create urban woodlands for the local communities to enjoy, as well as increasing flood water storage, improving air quality and providing habitat for wildlife.
