Friends of Hanover is raising money to sponsor our own tree in the Islington Forest for Change project

Islington Clean Air Parents (ICAP) is crowdfunding to plant 200 trees in and around Islington. The trees will come from Forest for Change, an art installation in the courtyard of Somerset House that is part of the London Design Biennale.

After the Biennale finishes at the end of June, these trees will need a home. The plan is to plant them in parks, schools, housing estates and other areas to increase greenery and reduce air pollution in our borough, which has the least natural space in the UK.

Each tree will cost £150 to bring to Islington, which includes transport, ground preparation and initial maintenance. From the autumn they will be looked after by Islington Council's tree team.

While you can pledge money directly on ICAP's page, FoH has set up this page to sponsor our own tree, which will be named as Hanover's on the Islington Forest for Change map and perhaps even planted nearby.
