As an Environmental Programs Assistant at ReForest London, Carly (she/her) is responsible for assisting with outdoor events, tree giveaways, and park naturalizations.
Working towards a degree in Environmental Design, she understands the important role that trees play in creating happy, healthy communities. When she learned about the work ReForest London is doing, she was excited to join a team that was providing meaningful impacts to the city through tree plantings and giveaways.
As a born and raised Londoner, Carly hopes to see the city create more walkable communities by improving public transit and active transportation opportunities. Growing up in a suburb on the edge of the city, she is familiar with how much Londoners must rely on personal vehicles to get around. She hopes to see higher density development and future transit village projects that will help to mitigate the effects of urban sprawl and create a more accessible city.
In her free time, Carly enjoys taking care of her houseplants, baking, and going for hikes with her dog Millie.
Carly’s favourite tree is the tulip tree.
