He said this would help him meet his promise to dig in 10,000 new trees in residential areas by March 2015 - double the number of street trees funded during his first mayoral term.
"The Mayor is seeking to increase tree cover in London by five per cent by 2025 to help make London a more attractive city to live, work and invest in," said a spokeswoman. "Trees improve air quality, reduce flood risk and provide shade."
Ealing will receive most trees, around 210. Other successful applicants include Camden, 132 trees, City of Westminster,100, Hackney,15, Hammersmith and Fulham, 115, Haringey,60, and Tower Hamlets,132.
The project, delivered in partnership with the Forestry Commission and Groundwork London, local boroughs, community groups and charities, frees up funds from a pot of £1.7m to plant street trees.
Successful bidders work with communities to identify areas where local people most want trees. Next round of the Mayor’s street tree initiative will open for applications this spring 2013.
