Trees For Cities

Trees for Cities is an independent charity, which inspires people to plant and love trees worldwide. Set up as Trees for London in 1993, Trees for Cities’ aim is to create social cohesion and beautify our cities through tree planting, community-led design, education and training initiatives in urban areas that need it most.

They manage projects across the UK and Ireland as well as internationally in cities such as Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Kigali, Ica and La Paz. Our work supports urban tree planting initiatives particularly in deprived areas of cities.
Community-led design is an integral part of our landscaping projects. Involving local residents, schools and community groups helps ensure the sustainability of green spaces.

Trees for Cities patrons include Jon Snow, Jamie Oliver, Neil Fox, Chris Collins, Alistair McGowan and Sir Richard Rogers. Www. Treesforcities. Org
