‘So you want to plant more trees?’ – A guide to commissioning and managing tree planting




The benefits of trees in urban areas are now widely recognised, and across the UK many councils and businesses are keen to increase the number of trees in their neighbourhoods.

Streets, parks and public spaces with healthy trees can attract people and investment, as well as helping to cool urban areas in the summer and contributing to other climate change adaptation and mitigation objectives. However, without careful consideration, it is possible to waste resources on tree-planting schemes that are ultimately unsuccessful.

This short guide, for councillors and other local decision-makers, provides an overview of what needs to be thought through before going ahead with tree-planting.
