Sponsor a new tree outside your home

The national street tree sponsorship scheme
For residents

Let’s fill our streets with trees

Lockdown has meant we’ve spent a lot more time close to home. This has made us more demanding of the role played by our streets.

Many of us just want the road outside our house, or on our kids walk to school route, to be greener, less polluted and generally more pleasant.

The power of street trees

We’ve all become much more aware of the benefits of trees. They absorb air pollution, capture CO2 and create shading & cooling on hot days. They are also beneficial to our physical and mental wellbeing, but sadly financial constraints have limited how many trees your local council can plant. Until now.

Street tree sponsorship is a game-changer

Trees for Streets is the new national street tree sponsorship scheme. It offers residents the opportunity to make a donation to sponsor a new street tree to go outside their house or somewhere in their neighbourhood.

Fact

Every £1 spent on trees, saves the UK £7 in healthcare, energy and environmental costs.

Hannah's story

"I think just for the future, as urban areas get hotter, it'll be really important to have more street trees, so that people can walk along the road and be in puddles of shade on really hot days."
