Trees for Streets is all about unleashing the power of trees to help turn all our streets, and housing estates, into green vibrant places…
..we’ve created our national street tree sponsorship scheme to help make this mission a reality.
Over the next ten years we aim to support the planting of over ¼ million street trees.
The project is also about empowering residents to do something amazing. We do this by helping them make a wonderful contribution in their immediate neighbourhood.
Sponsoring a local tree can create a real sense of ownership and a connection with your community.
We help residents and councils work together to deliver this shared ambition.
All too often our streets are dominated by grey buildings, tarmacked roads, and cars. Trees help pull the natural world back into these built spaces, so making our streets more liveable.
Trees are amazing. They have the power to cool our pavements during heatwaves. They absorb nasty airborne pollution and CO2. And perhaps most amazing is the positive impact they have on our personal well-being. It is proven that people who live in a tree-lined neighbourhood have better levels of well-being than those who don’t.
