Bromley wins London Trees & Woodlands Award

The London Borough of Bromley, a member of the London Tree Officers Association (LTOA), has won the London Trees & Woodlands Award for excellence by or for a public body.

The award is judged by representatives from the Forestry Commission, Woodland Trust, Royal Parks, Greater London Authority and the LTOA. It recognises good practice in all aspects of tree and woodland management. LTOA chair Dave Lofthouse said: "Quite often there seems to be an assumption that London boroughs and tree officers take delight in removing trees. It is good for a change to see tree officers getting praise for their championship of trees. Taking care of trees is what we do."
