Trees and woodland manifesto sent to mayoral candidates

Trees for Cities and The Woodland Trust have launched a campaign to get trees and woodlands recognised as a vital part of London's future development.

The 10 mayoral candidates in this year's election have been sent an eight-point manifesto for London's trees and woods. It's hoped they will endorse the recommendations and develop a trees and woodland legacy for the capital.

The manifesto highlights the struggle to protect and enhance the capital's trees and covers issues such as ensuring trees feature in significant developments including the Olympic sites, securing more funding for major tree-planting programmes, protecting existing woodlands and ensuring trees are an integral part of the strategy for tackling climate change in the city.

The two organisations have also called for all London trees to be added to a database and for candidates to support the campaign for a million more trees in London by 2010.
