Sponsor a tree

How it works

Trees for Streets makes sponsoring a street tree as effortless as possible. We’ll capture the details of your request – along with your sponsorship donation – and work with your local council to make it happen.

Street tree sponsorship in three easy steps


Choose a location

Simply drop a pin on to our online map to tell us where you’d like your new street tree planted. We may ask for a few more details about your chosen spot to work out whether it’s possible to plant there.


Your council confirms

We’ll pass your sponsorship request to your council. One of their tree officers will check the location to see if it’s suitable for planting. We’ll let you know once your request is confirmed.


Your tree is planted

Once your tree is confirmed, we’ll take your sponsorship payment and prepare for planting. Most councils plant new trees in late autumn – we’ll let you know when it’s happening.


Each summer we’ll text or email to remind you to water your tree – so you’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come…

Spread the word

Let’s fill our streets with trees! Help us by spreading the word among friends and neighbours throughout your community and beyond.
