Madrid – the Capital with the Second Highest Number of Trees in the World

According to data from Madrid’s City Council, the city has the second highest number of trees for a capital city in the world – Tokyo takes the lead. Madrid has 300,000 compared to Tokyo’s 400,000 – most of them (216,000) can be found lining Madrid’s pavements. Madrid’s Retiro Park accounts for around 15,000. If you were to take into account Madrid’s Casa de Campo (west of the city with 1,700 hectares), you could add another 500,0o0 trees – easily putting Tokyo in the shade.
