Volunteers dig in to plant new trees in Haringey

Residents have pitched in to make Haringey even greener, helping the council plant new trees at three of the borough’s parks.

Children, “Friends of” groups and Cabinet member for Environment Cllr Peray Ahmet all turned out to plant the trees, after Haringey applied for a £21,800 grant from the Greater London Authority.

It follows a season of planting that has seen more than 200 new trees arrive in Haringey.

With the latest GLA funds, Downhills Park, Bruce Castle Park and Markfield Park shared 45 trees between them, to increase shade and help deal with frequent heavy rain. For the planting, which finished on Saturday, the council provided gloves and tools for volunteers – although some of the little ones brought their own equipment, including tiny beach spades.

There are 50 more being planted on residential streets in N17 and N15, in areas identified by the council and community group Tottenham Trees as having low tree cover.

Cllr Ahmet, who was at Downhills Park, said:

“We had a brilliant day planting new trees, with lots of people volunteering their time and getting stuck in. As well as being a great event for the community, the trees are another sign that we are committed to making Haringey greener. We have fantastic parks across the borough and these new trees are the perfect addition, right in time for spring.”

In total, the council has planted around 210 new trees this season using the GLA money, highways project funds and private sponsorship.

There is also a separate community tree plant scheme run by charity Groundwork London, which is planting 150 small trees at Lordship Recreation Ground. Around 50 locals have teamed up to plant the trees, which include apple, medlar and Alder buckthorn. The young trees are already growing well and the planting scheme is expected to be finished mid-April
