Harrow’s parks are about to get greener thanks to a grant from the Mayor of London – Harrow Council has been granted £40,194 of the Greener City Fund for Tree Planting.
The Trees for Communities project means 270 new trees to be planted across 11 of the boroughs parks and open spaces.
The new trees will include over 40 different species to enhance and make the parks more attractive. The council say the funding will also help improve air and noise pollution and reduce flood risks.
Cllr Graham Henson, cabinet member for environment said: “This additional investment will improve and bring more health benefits as well as make our parks greener, attractive, and more accessible for everyone.”
The first trees are expected to be planted in early January 2018 and the project is expected to be complete by March.
