Trees for Cities
Trees for Cities is an independent charity (1032154) set up in 1993.
We aim to enrich biodiversity, create social cohesion, beautify our
cities and tackle global warming through community tree planting,
education and training initiatives in urban areas of the greatest need.
Our work focuses on areas of social and environmental deprivation
bringing together local communities to work on practical tree planting
and educational projects in deprived public spaces.
Throughout our work we place a special emphasis on the involvement of local people and especially target disadvantaged people, such as those from ethnic minorities and the younger generation, who often suffer barriers to participation and are disengaged from developments.
As well as educating and developing local people during our projects, in London we also run a series of certified horticulture, arboriculture and woodland management courses specialising in developing and up-skilling the long-term unemployed and those with complex backgrounds.
We are based in London, but also deliver projects in other cities within the UK, such as Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Brighton, Sheffield, Nottingham and Reading, and also internationally in Kenya, Ethiopia, Bolivia and Peru.
Trees for Cities is passionate about the environmental and social benefits of its projects, and it is grateful of support from individuals, businesses, local authorities, grants and community groups to be able to deliver them.
