Londoners identify 20 new historic trees
Twenty new historically significant trees have been added to the list of ‘Great Trees of London' by the charity Trees for Cities. They include an ash in St Pancras Gardens, a cedar of Lebanon at Forty Hall in Enfield and an oak in Richmond Park, Surrey.
Forty-one trees were originally awarded ‘Great Tree' status in 1988, when Londoners nominated the capital's leading landmark trees after the Great Storm of 1987. The new trees on the list include nine London Planes, a species that contributes to the unique atmosphere of many squares and green spaces in the capital.
