BUSINESSES CAN NOW HELP GREEN-UP LOCAL STREETS

Corporate Street Tree Partnerships
For businesses

Street trees are unsung heroes. They directly improve our immediate environment, lifting our mental and physical well-being. Sadly, too many streets lack the necessary tree cover, and particularly those in less affluent areas.

Trees for Streets is on a mission to ‘Fill Our Streets With Trees’, and we’d love your support to green the greyer streets in your local neighbourhoods.

We’re currently working to fund street tree planting for the 24/25 winter season, and we’re keen to speak with potential supporters.

Working with us

Trees for Streets is the National Street Tree Sponsorship Scheme. We have relationships with over 20 local authorities where we can channel funding from corporates and other funders directly into street tree planting.

Most of the councils we work with have areas that are of a higher priority for tree planting – be they school streets, near hospitals, in areas of deprivation and low tree canopy cover. We encourage our corporate sponsors to support schemes in these areas, although we are very open to discussing your ideas.

Giving back

It’s great to see businesses looking at different ways of giving back environmentally and socially. We’re seeing growth in interest from organisations working fulfil their ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ (CSR) agendas. Companies with local authority contracts are working with us to explore their ‘Social Value’ obligations. And we partner with numerous small local businesses who simply want to plant a tree near their place of work.

Funding street tree planting in proximity to your business locations is a very tangible way to make an impact directly into your own communities. Trees for Streets is unique in being able to offering this type of planting opportunity via local authorities.

Fact

On average, the most affluent neighbourhoods in the UK have more than 50% more tree cover than the least affluent neighbourhoods.

We’ve been supported by the City of London (via their City Bridge Trust), DEfRA, The Mayor of London, and the People’s Postcode Lottery. And we’re now working with a growing base of corporate sponsors who want to invest directly in street greening in specific local areas.
