To mark National Tree Week, the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk planted a new one near the play area in The Walks on Thursday 28 November.
Richard Fisher, Arboricultural Officer at the borough council, said: “It’s good to mark National Tree Week by planting a London Plane here in the walks.
“Trees are so important to the environment, they give us oxygen, store carbon, improve air quality, conserve water, preserve soil and support wildlife.”
“Our Street Trees for King’s Lynn initiative continues to introduce more saplings in the area and there will be another tree in The Walks soon with a Catalpa being planted.”
National Tree Week is the UK's largest annual tree celebration marking the start of the winter tree planting season.
