Tree Planting Grants 2016-17

5th December 2016 / Posted by CRP Team

Mayor Sadiq Khan promised in his manifesto to plant more trees across London, working with businesses and the public sector.

London’s already a surprisingly green city. In fact, about 20% of the capital is covered by trees. However, some parts of London are short of greenery. Planting trees could make these areas look and feel more pleasant to people. Trees can also help protect London from climate change.

This winter 2016-17, Sadiq is offering up to £750,000 of funding to plant trees and woodlands in London. Boroughs, charities and other bodies can apply for tree planting grants for projects that will be completed by the end of March 2017. The minimum grant available is £10,000.

The Greater London Authority is looking for projects that will:

  • create new woodlands
  • plant trees in public spaces
  • plant groups of trees in parks and green areas

Applications are now open and close 10am, Monday 19 December. Follow the link below for full details on how to apply.
