In 2009, ReForest London built new partnerships, launched a new contest to celebrate trees, and continued planting trees and strengthening communities throughout London. We planted over 5,000 trees and shrubs throughout London, bringing our 4 year total to over 17,000 native trees and shrubs planted in over 130 projects.

This year we launched London's first ever Amazing Tree Quest. This contest sought to identify London's most amazing trees through the online nominations by Londoners. With 10 categories for adults and children, the project drew funny, touching, and meaningful stories about Londoners' love for their urban forest. The Celebrate the Trees event, where the Amazing Tree Quest prizes were awarded, brought together many people to celebrate London's trees. View 2009 Amazing Tree Quest Winners

We completed our Neighbourhood Re-Leaf: Glen Cairn project this year. In this project we planted over 1,000 trees in this neighbourhood in 2008 and 2009 in yards, parks, and schoolyards, and the City planted another 100 boulevard trees. It was a successful pilot project, and we hope to continue planting neighbourhood by neighbourhood.
