Funding has been released for the borough to plant 100 new trees.

The Mayor of London has announced £23,440 of funding for 100 trees to be planted in Basing Hill Park, Brunswick Park, Hendon Park, Lyndhurst Park, Oak Hill Park, Rushgrove Park and Woodcroft Park to increase canopy cover, create localised shade and contribute to air quality.

The Faiths Forum has also been awarded funding for 32 trees at diverse places of worship across 10 London boroughs, with New North London Synagogue in Finchley benefitting from this.

London Deputy Mayor of environment and energy Shirley Rodrigues said: "The Mayor wants London to be one of the greenest cities in the world and the 20,000 new trees we are planting this season will play a small but important part in improving our green spaces.

"In addition to this we are also offering 10,000 free trees to local community groups, schools and charities.

"The Mayor is determined to protect and increase our trees, woodland and green space and help London become the world’s first National Park City."

The announcement comes as part of National Tree Week, which finished on December 3.
