Haringey’s Labour-run council is once again failing on the environment. As your councillors, we hear of countless cases of trees being felled, whether that’s on the Parkland Walk or on local streets.
This is backed up with data. In 2019/20 the council felled 429 trees across the borough, yet only managed to plant 43. If we go back just a few years the deficit is in the thousands.

In 2018 Haringey Labour's manifesto pledged to plant 1000 trees, but shockingly they have actually managed to go backwards and reduce the amount of trees we have.
Trees are vital to us. They support local ecosystems, help to stop flooding, clean the air that we breathe, boost mental health, and, perhaps most important of all, are powerful in the fight against climate change.
We should plant more trees, not just in parks, but all around us.
That’s why we are asking for your support. Please support the petition below to send a message to Haringey Council that you want more street trees right across Haringey!
