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.
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.
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.
From May 2021 you’ll be able to use this website to access details of your local street tree sponsorship scheme. And we’ll manage everything on your behalf, with our participating councils.
