Tree Species List
ReForest London plants only native trees in the Celebration Forest. To retain the natural beauty of the Celebration Forest, individual trees are not marked or plaqued in any way. Names of all recipients will be listed on our Celebration Forest signage, and listed perpetually on the ReForest London online Dedication Registry.
Why Plant Native Species?
In the spirit of ecological restoration, the Celebration Forest is planted exclusively with trees that are native to the London area. Assessments conducted by ReForest London tree specialists help us to determine which tree species are best suited to the site. This gives our Celebration Forest the best chance for survival, while maintaining a healthy and diverse ecosystem.
- are easier to maintain
- are adapted to the region, so they handle climate extremes and other stressors better
- provide suitable wildlife habitat
- don't disrupt local ecosystems
