Leeds has set an ambitious target to practically double the number of trees in our district by 2050. Growing more trees will make our city a greener, healthier and better place to live and is part of our
climate action plan.
planting 50 hectares (around 200,000 trees!) of woodland every year on public land to do our bit and lead by example. We’re also enforcing local and national policies to help protect trees wherever we reasonably can. Because of this work and more, Leeds has been officially recognised as a
Tree City of the World.
We need the help of residents, businesses and landowners in Leeds to make the city’s ambition a reality.
You can help by:
- volunteering your time to plant trees
- using your own land or garden to plant trees
- donating money to fund and manage new trees
- helping to protect and preserve mature trees
Every tree planted in Leeds also counts towards the
White Rose Forest, a regional partnership aiming to increase tree cover across West and North Yorkshire.
Donate money for new trees
Residents and businesses can also support tree planting by making a donation or by sponsoring a new street tree at a location of your choice.
