Trees cover just over 20% of London’s land mass, accounting for an impressive 8.4 million trees, from urban woodlands to parks and gardens. 

Just to be sure the counting is up to par, high resolution aerial photography is used to build a detailed map of the London area, that enables pinpoint accuracy in the counting of trees and their precise locations.

The city authorities have plans to increase tree cover by 10% over the next 30 years.

London's Botanical Gardens

We can define a Botanical garden as a place that grows plants for scientific study, open to the public with proper documentation of the collections including wild origin. London is blessed with Kew Gardens, which looks after the world’s biggest botanical collections, opening its doors to the public in 1759. Kew has developed into a collecting museum, herbarium, scientific institute, library, teaching school and much more.

“I'm leaving because the weather is too good. I hate London when it's not raining."
Groucho Marx
“Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.”
“It is not the walls that make the city, but the people who live within them. The walls of London may be battered, but the spirit of the Londoner stands resolute and undismayed.”
King George VI
