Better Bankside Urban Forest scheme plants 11 trees outside Tate Modern

Eleven trees have been planted as part of an urban forest initiative at one of the world's biggest contemporary art galleries, London's Tate Modern.

The lime trees, 16cm-20cm girth, were planted in the Sumner Buildings Garden at the rear of the gallery during the last week in February. The project is part of the Better Bankside Urban Forest scheme.

This aims to improve public spaces including streets, pavements, squares on the south bank of the River Thames. Forestry Commission is funding the planting.

The event also tied in with a Thank Goodness for Trees initiative led by Tate Modern to help locals enjoy facilities at Tate Modern including the Tate Community Garden.
