|New Trees to Keep London Green|
- Mayor backs Woodland Framework
LONDON, already the greenest of the world's big cities, aims to keep its lead with the unveiling of the London Tree and Woodland Framework.
The idea is to include trees and other forms of greenery, both those already existing and new plantings, in development plans, a measure described as "vital" by London Mayor Ken Livingstone.
"Trees are as much a part of London's history as its famous buildings and monuments," said English Heritage's Philip Davies.
