Trees for Cities

Trees for Cities Million Trees Campaign was launched in June 2002 to make London a healthier, greener, and more pleasant city to live in. Tree coverage across the capital is on the up and in the 2007/08 planting season 36,700 new trees were planted across the capital bringing lasting benefits to local residents. The Million Trees campaign aims to plant a million more trees in the city by the start of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Eastend Homes have been working with Trees for Cities at the Manchester Estate, on the Isle of Dogs. Residents were consulted on the location of new community gardens with new trees, benches and planted beds. The area around Salford House and Urmston House was chosen and on the 28th March a community day was held and residents were invited to help with the planting of the new trees.
