The Forestry Commission in England has made an estimate of the cost of planting a tree in an urban site in London as part of the London Trees and Woodlands Grant Scheme. This varies from between £250 for planting in a grass verge to £450 for planting in paved areas. Protective guarding of a tree can add £130. Maintaining a tree for the first three years, which includes watering, general maintenance and formative pruning is estimated at £300.
