Tree lovers have plan
A London group dedicated to upholding the city's Forest City moniker will focus its efforts downtown this year.
Greening the Core, a three-phase initiative by ReForest London, will see more than 50 trees planted in the city's core, including in two key gateways.
"Downtown needs trees," said Julie Ryan, executive director of the charitable non-profit organization.
"Trees lead to a better quality of life in the core. Studies have shown people are actually willing to spend more shopping on a tree-lined street."
