Tree-Mendous Volunteers Get Awards

Ealing’s flagship street tree initiative has received a highly recognised award from the RE:LEAF Tree and Woodland Awards at City Hall. 

The award, which is under the initiative of the Mayor of London, commemorate the work of individuals and groups who protect, improve and expand the capital’s tree and woodland cover like the cleaners in Ealing.

The tree warden scheme, first introduced in Ealing in December 2011, has more than 35 local volunteers signed-up.

Such an award is a true recognition for the work and efforts of tree wardens for their work in sprucing-up local streets and planting trees, maintaining excellent relationships between local volunteers and the council, and for providing a new kind of volunteering opportunity for local people.

It was also mentioned that the volunteers play a key role in the maintenance of the trees they plant, including watering, weeding and pruning.
