The Street Trees project

Street Trees

People's Postcode Lottery logo

They're our neighbours. Old friends. They're at the heart of our community. Street trees add character to our streets, join us on our daily commute and provide a host of benefits for people, wildlife and our urban environment.

But they're under threat.

Poor management, shrinking budgets and simple neglect means our street trees are disappearing. It's up to us -- all of us -- to stand up and demand change. We want to see more street trees planted and better care for those we already have.

You can make a difference

Life is better with street trees. Celebrate the trees you love and help to raise awareness of the benefits they provide, the threats they face and the difference people can make with our Street Trees Celebration Starter Kit. Our postal kits have now all gone, but you can still celebrate street trees with your community using our downloadable resources (.ZIP, 6MB).

If you'd like any of these resources in Welsh please email

Meet our street fighters

People just like you across the UK are fighting for their street trees. They're planting the street trees of the future, rallying the support of their communities and influencing local planning policies.
