Bringing biodiversity and beauty to the high street

Over a year of fundraising, planning and logistics sees trees blossom in Palmers Green!
In an effort to start building a green corridor between Hazelwood Recreation ground and Broomfield Park and to improve the attractiveness of the high street, Palmers Green Action Team successfully crowd funded for four trees to be placed on the pavement in large pots in the high street. The Mayor's Make London fund gave the project a grant enabling it to go ahead.
Palmers Green is in the middle of a B-Line (which aim to create corridors for pollinators) but the high street is very short on pollinators' habitat.
We are excited to let you know the trees have now taken pride of place in Palmers Green and we are overwhelmed by how great they look. We took delivery of four stylish pots and compost from Thompsons, two Pyrus Chanticleer from Barcham Trees and two olives which have been very kindly donated by a local resident. We would like to say a big thank you to Thor's Trees who gave their time to co-ordinate arrangements.
Thanks to everyone for supporting the project, to the Mayor of London for funding and to Enfield Council for their support and planning. If anyone is interested in getting involved with greening projects, please get in touch with the team
Please follow us on Facebook and lnstagram. We would love to see your pictures with the trees, please post on social media and tag us.
Thank you to everyone who are helping us to bring the green back into Palmers Green.
