Lack of appreciation, shrinking budgets and simple neglect means our street trees are disappearing. 

We want to see more street trees planted and better care for those we already have.

It's up to us to stand up and demand change.

Street tree heroes: standing up for street trees

People 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.

You can make a difference

Life is better with street trees. They're a public asset and belong to all of us, so it's up to us to make sure they're recognised and valued.

In 2019, we helped 500 community groups to celebrate and protect their street trees. We also worked with local authorities across the UK to put in place policies that recognise the true value of trees in urban environments.

We can help you too, whether you’re a passionate individual concerned about how trees are being cared for in your town, or a councillor trying to make greener streets that work for everyone.

Our trees need people across the UK to take up the mantle of caring for street trees. Find out more about the trees in your town or city, who looks after them and how they are maintained.

You could help raise awareness in your local community, support your local council in its efforts to care for them or hold it to account if it doesn't.

Our free resources will help you get started, and we're here to offer support too.
