Sponsor a tree

We are proud to be planting 10,000 trees across the Borough in 2021/22

Over the last few years we have been increasing the number of trees planted in the town and have been working hard to get more trees in your streets and parks. Our new partnership with Trees for Streets helps you to get involved too.

Trees for streets is a national tree sponsorship scheme that makes it easy for you to donate and care for trees in your neighbourhood.

You can sponsor a tree on your road or a celebration tree in a park to mark a birth, commemorate a death or other notable event in your life. They also make a great gift for a friend or loved one.

Neighbours or friends can join together to get community trees planted in your area and help improve your environment.
