Trees for Streets is the new National Street Tree Sponsorship Scheme launching to the public at the start of May 2021. It is a not-for-profit charitable ‘enterprise’, providing local councils an innovative way to help fund street tree planting by letting residents and businesses sponsor new street trees.

The scheme is a collaboration between the progressive charity, Trees for Cities, and the local innovator, Start with Local. It is supported by the Mayor of London and funded by City Bridge Trust and DEFRA’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund.
