The Dorchester hotel in Mayfair is soon to celebrate their 80th anniversary and doing it the eco friendly way. To emphasise the hotels deeply British roots, they will be planting 80 trees in the “Future Great Trees” project in London. This is in a unique collaboration with the international charity Trees for Cities (TfC).
This eco friendly present to the city of London consist of long living canopy trees that will provide green air and help enhance London’s cityscape for hundreds of years to come, as mentioned by TfC Chief Executive Sharon Johnson. This eco friendly gift is inspired by The Dorchester’s listed plane tree that has graced the entrance to Mayfair’s most famous address for 80 years, and was designated one of the Great Trees of London by TfC in 1997. Serviced Offices in Mayfair will certainly have a much greener view as 15 Future Great Trees of the 80 will be planted in Mayfair and St James to be form the Dorchester Anniversary walk. The other 65 will be planted in designated areas in London to make the city more eco friendly.
The Dorchester’s General Manager is proud of the eco friendly hotel’s endeavour; not only are they paying tribute to the past but also creating 80 living monuments to be enjoyed far into the future. The Major of London, Boris Johnson, agrees that this will leave a wonderful leafy legacy for generations to come. Johnson has launched an eco friendly idea to increase the tree cover in the capital. When seeking offices to rent, London will be the place to look as 10,000 more street trees are planned to be planted by 2012. Eco friendly businesses and cities are the way of the future.
