Sponsor a tree in a park

You may be looking for a way to celebrate the life of a loved one, mark an important event such as a wedding or an anniversary, or just find a thoughtful gift.

Through the Trees for Streets sponsorship scheme, you can sponsor a tree in your favourite park.

Easy process

Simply submit your sponsorship request along with your donation payment details (no payment is taken until your sponsorship is confirmed) over on the Trees for Streets website. The council’s tree team survey the location to see whether it is suitable. If all is ok, an instant impact 3 – 4 metre tree will be planted, by our contractor, between November and April.

Why sponsor a tree?

Trees deliver lots of benefits in our communities. By sponsoring a park tree, you’ll be helping to:

  • combat climate change and pollution
  • create shade and help with cooling
  • improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in your neighbourhood
  • protect from flooding
  • create a haven for wildlife
  • leave a legacy for future generations to enjoy


We set a deadline for sponsorship requests on the 3rd December each year for planting by the end of April the following year. This gives us enough time to survey your location, order the tree and schedule the contractor.
