Together, we can care for our trees

The devastating effects of climate change cannot be overstated. 

We’re hearing more and more that it’s increasingly likely we will surpass the global warming threshold in the next five years. This could be catastrophic for our wildlife, our climate and all of us.

We can already see the impact of these changes across your parks, especially in the health of our trees, but Alister Hayes, Head of Conservation at The Royal Parks and his dedicated team of experts believe there is still hope and plenty we can do to avert disaster. With your help, we can make a difference and care for London’s precious trees. 

Please give today and to support our vital conservation work.
