B019 – WHAT THE FACT: 420 – GREEN LONDON

Yesterday it was 420, so in aid of this day I thought I would share an interesting fact I found out about Trees and Green spaces in London:

London has enough trees to be classed as a forest, with a total of around 8.4 million trees. thats about 1 tree for every person.

Have a look at these snaps for some pretty cool but random facts on trees in London.
