Urge your council to fight climate change with trees
More than half of the UK’s 408 local authorities have declared a climate emergency. Planting more trees and protecting those they already have is key. We’re here to help.

Local authorities across England are at different stages in planning how to tackle the climate crisis in their area. Whatever stage they are at, we can help.
Trees must be part of the fight
Trees lock up carbon, fight flooding, reduce pollution, nurture wildlife and make landscapes more resilient. Local authorities must plant more trees and protect those they already have.
Join our call
Your voice can make a difference. We have contacted all local authorities across England and some are already doing great work. But to make a real difference we need everyone to get involved.
Please ask your council to speak to us about how they can respond to the climate emergency with trees.
We can help your council develop a plan to:
- boost tree canopy cover
- identify available land
- find funding.
Together we can create an Emergency Tree Plan for each English authority that's bold, forward-thinking and effective.
