We’re excited to launch Islington Forest for Change, a project to plant an ‘urban forest’ in Islington to help reduce toxic air pollution. The trees will help regenerate urban and green spaces, and well as greening our streets, estates, schools and neighbourhoods.
To get the trees professionally planted around Islington, we need to raise £15,000. This will cover the transport, planting with supports, and watering of the trees whilst they take root in their new homes.
We are delighted that Islington Council is supporting the project and will take on the long-term maintenance of the trees. This is a community project and will bring together many local groups, schools and organisations.
Please consider pledging to our crowdfunding campaign. Each tree costs £150 to plant, and anyone donating this amount can dedicate a tree in the name of an individual, family, school or organisation. There are also other rewards for smaller donations.
