Slough Borough Council’s new environmental project will see 150 trees planted in total.

Nine young oak, cherry and pear trees have already been set in Cippenham Green at the launch of the project on Thursday.

Councillors Satpal Parmar (Lab, Cippenham Meadows) and Natasa Pantelic (Lab, Cippenham Meadows) planted the first tree.

Cllr Parmar said: “We pledged to plant 150 new trees this year as part of our ongoing commitment to making Slough cleaner and greener.

“We’re doing what we promised and I look forward to seeing the trees in full flourish by the summer.

“They’re going to make such a big difference to people, making our neighbourhoods nicer places to live for current residents as well as future generations.”

The remaining trees will be a mixture of horse chestnut, alder, oak, cherry and lime.

They will be planted at various other locations around the borough, including Salt Hill Park.
