Civic Trees plant trees for Mayor’s RE:LEAF scheme

Civic Trees, part of national green services company Glendale, has completed the planting of over 350 trees for the RE:LEAF scheme, led by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.

Specialists from Civic Trees used the latest handling, planting and maintenance techniques to install the trees across the streets, parks and residential areas of the London Borough of Southwark.

Its specialist tree-planters were responsible for preparing the ground before planting and securing the trees in their final locations.  They will also undertake ongoing maintenance.

The RE:LEAF initiative aims to encourage the planting of more trees across London, while also protecting the city’s woodlands and wildlife.

So far around 10,000 trees have already been planted, with a further 10,000 promised during the course of Boris Johnson’s second term in office.

Deric Newman, director of sales at Civic Trees, said: “Urban locations can often present many challenges when it comes to tree planting and our experienced teams overcame them through good preparation and planning to complete this project successfully.

“The RE:LEAF scheme really benefits the whole of London as it not only improves the visual aesthetic of the city but also offers its residents the chance to learn about and understand the growing process while recognising the importance of trees in modern day society.”
