Tree Planting - New Cavendish Street

Lord Robert Winston and the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Councillor Susie Burbridge, officiated at a tree planting last week to mark the successful introduction to the south side of New Cavendish Street (West End Ward) of part of the Marylebone tree grid. The work has been organised by the W1W Tree Initiative and Westminster City Council with the support of local hospitals including the Princess Grace Hospital and others. The Westminster Tree Trust also supported and contributed to the cost of the works.

New Cavendish Street forms a very important link between Marylebone High Street right through to the Camden border and forms the spine of the tree planting grid which is hoped to be completed by the Olympics. So far some 280 trees have been planted as part of this Scheme and this should increase to 500.

Lord Winston spoke of the calming affect of trees, their positive effect on the environment and spoke to local school children as to the improvement in air quality created by tree planting.
