Plant Trees for Cities in the UK

Item # 41623

Help improve cities by planting trees!

City trees clean the air, provide carbon sinks, and make the cityscape more beautiful. They also create needed habitat for urban wildlife -- including migrating and local songbirds -- not to mention a safe haven from people, dogs, and cars.

But cities, especially in bustling inner-city and commercial locations, are seldom planned in a way that preserve or protect their trees. City trees are cut down to make way for new buildings, or because they are old, or to improve a view. The loss of each tree creates a void where beauty, cleaner air, and a vibrant micro-habitat once existed.

For over a decade, Trees for Cities (TFC) has been working with local communities to plant and maintain city trees. TFC's goals are to tackle global warming, create social cohesion, and beautify cities through tree planting, community education, and training initiatives in urban areas of greatest need.

To change the way we think about trees, TFC has created its Edible Playground program, connecting inner-city youth with nature.

You can help. Your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ plants 15 trees in the UK, helping re-green England for city-dwellers, for urban and migrating wildlife, and for generations to come.


TFC's projects are located throughout Greater London, in Brighton, Bristol, Leeds, manchester, the Midlands, Nottingham, Reading, and Sheffield. Some of these locations are recovering from localized natural disasters, such as a hurricane in Brighton years ago and a disease killing many of the trees in Manchester.

Trees for Cities works with local communities on tree-planting and landscaping projects. Its aim is to tackle global warming, create social cohesion and beautify cities through tree planting, community education, and training initiatives in urban areas of greatest need.
