Sponsor a tree

Celebration trees

Sponsor a tree in a local park

You may be looking for a way to celebrate the life of a loved one, mark an important event like a wedding or anniversary, or just find a thoughtful gift.

Having a tree planted in a local park or a green space maybe just the thing. It’s certainly a great way to create a lasting legacy. As it grows, it will cast it shade for many decades, maybe even hundreds of years, helping improve the immediate environment.

We make it easy

You can now sponsor the planting of a new tree in a local park directly through our charity, via this website. We’re working with a growing number of local councils (listed below) to make sponsoring a tree much easier and more affordable.

All you have to do is choose your park and fill in a simple online application, make your donation and the following winter a nursery grown 3-4m tall 'instant impact' tree will be planted. We will then contact you with the exact location.

4 simple steps


Choose  location

Select the local authority area, and then pick the park where the tree is to be planted.


Make your donation

You can use your credit or debit card to make your sponsorship donation via our charity.


Planting the tree

The tree (3-4m instant impact) is planted by the council in the forthcoming winter (Nov – Mar).


Enjoying the tree

We contact you with a what3words location, so you can enjoy the beauty of this new tree.

Kelly's story

'I read about the opportunity to sponsor a Celebration Tree in the Tower Hamlets council newsletter, and thought it was a lovely thing – so decided to sponsor a tree in memory of my niece Sophie.' 

'I regularly walk through Ropemakers Field as one of my early morning walking routes, and really enjoy watching the doggie playdates that happen. Now I can visit my tree there too!'

This project is part of the Trees for Cities charity. We currently offer this scheme in the following council areas: Bedford, Blackpool, Bristol, Cambridge, Coventry, and in London, we work with Barnet, Croydon, Ealing, Haringey, Harrow, Hillingdon, Islington and Tower Hamlets.

Some councils call these schemes Memorial Trees or Dedication Trees, we like to call them Celebration Trees.

We hope our online application is straight forward to use, but we’re always very happy to answer any questions from individuals at team@treesforstreets.org.  

We’re also very happy to speak with councils looking to move their dedication and memorial tree sponsorship service to a national platform. Drop us a line at councils@treesforstreets.org
