The Council and its partners are looking at many ways of dealing with the effects of Climate Change and making the borough more resilient to its effects.
Planting Trees is one way of trying to reduce the carbon in the atmosphere.
Trees not only define our park landscape but also make our greenspaces more resilient to the effects of Climate Change, thus making Hounslow a healthier environment to live in.
Trees also provide increased food sources for insects, birds and mammals and humans; connectivity between the borough’s greenspaces; diversity within the boroughs tree species; improved landscapes & active land management; shade & cooling; and enjoyment of the natural world for residents and visitors.

This European maple is one of the most common street trees in London, and it really comes into its own in the autumn.
Its pointed leaves (rather more so than the similar Sycamore) turn golden yellow, russet brown and bitter orange at this time of year. Look out for the winged seeds, or samara, too, some of them will stay on the tree right through November and even through the winter.
