Dozens of roads across Watford are set to have new trees planted in them over the coming months.

The town will be getting 50 new trees between this month and March following a borough council consultation with residents.

It is happening to enhance the area and show Watford’s commitment to a sustainable future, the local authority said.

Mr Taylor added: “I am committed to increasing the number of trees in Watford. Our town already has a good tree population, with 18% tree canopy cover, two per cent higher than the national average. However, if we are going to play our part in responding to the climate emergency, it's vital we do more.”
