Sponsor a tree

How it works

Use this platform to sponsor a street tree and we’ll make the process as effortless as possible. We 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

01

Decide on the location

As part of our simple application, you drop a pin on to our online map to show where you’d like your new street tree. We ask a few questions about your chosen spot – to help determine whether it is possible to plant here.

02

Your local council confirms

We pass your sponsorship request to your local council. One of their tree officers will check the location you’ve requested, and if it’s suitable your tree will be approved for planting.

03

Your tree is planted

Once your sponsorship is confirmed, we’ll confirm back with you, and take your sponsorship payment. Most councils plant their new trees in late Autumn. We’ll drop you a line when this is happening.

Watering

Each summer we’ll get back in contact by text or email to remind you to water your tree. This is the fun part of your sponsorship, which ensures you’ll be able to enjoy your tree for years to come…

Spread the word

Spread the word within your community. Help us to help you to fill your streets with trees.
