Hundreds of trees that were damaged during recent storms and high winds will be replaced over the next few months.

Barnet Borough Council will spend approximately £150,000 planting 750 trees of varying species including Chinese privet, double white flowering cherry and birch.

The trees will replace those damaged in the St Jude’s storm last year as well as other trees affected by high winds over the last two years.

The project will be funded by the council’s priority projects fund.

Councillor Dean Cohen, cabinet member for environment, said: “Many of our trees have taken a battering during the stormy weather over the last couple of years.  I am delighted to see the council take such decisive action to replace those trees and restore the beauty they brought to all of our residential roads.”
