Legacy Forest

Restoring biodiversity in East London as a living legacy for Queen Elizabeth

Biodiversity

Legacy Forest will be located in the dynamic borough of Barking and Dagenham as a living legacy for Queen Elizabeth.

In an area with a long-history of industrial activity and high levels of pollution, Legacy Forest will create a resilient biodiversity corridor, restore the soil and bring back ecological richness to a borough in desperate need of an investment in Nature.

As well as a boost for Nature, the forest will be accessible to local people where they can take in the sights and sounds of the natural world; it will be a restorative and tranquil space in the community. This living legacy will support the wellbeing of both people and planet long into the future.
