To mark the University’s 175th anniversary, we will be planting two silver birch trees outside Cavendish Campus on Cleveland Street. The trees will mark an important milestone in our history and will make a small but vital contribution to improving our urban environment. Over the years, the trees will become part of our legacy for staff, students, alumni and the public to enjoy.

All are invited
When: 20 March, 12pm
Where: Cleveland Street – opposite BT Tower. Map
This is the first tree planting at any of our Central London sites in recent years. One of the trees will be planted by the University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Geoffrey Petts, and the other by Students’ Union representative, Tarik Mahri.
A greener Westminster
The idea of the project was inspired by the W1W Tree planning initiative, which has planted 500 trees in and around Portland Street, as part of a wider effort to make Westminster a greener borough. We are very grateful to Westminster City Council for partly funding the project, as well as the support and encouragement we received from Westminster Tree Trust, W1W Tree Planting Initiative and DEFRA’s Big Tree Plant.
