HUNDREDS of trees could soon be appearing on the streets of East London.

The scrapping of the Londoner, a newssheet published by the London Mayor, is helping Boris Johnson fund 10,000 street trees across London.

Tower Hamlets is one of 20 boroughs now set to benefit from up to 4,000 new street trees, as part of a second round of planting.

The trees will be planted in Tower Hamlets between November and spring next year.

Financial grants are now being offered to organisations to plant the trees. The trees can be planted by boroughs, community groups or charities, who will speak to people who registered an interest online in having a tree in their street to assess the suitability of the location.

Details on how to bid for street tree funding can be found on www.ltwgs.org
