Trees for Cities
Trees for Cities (TfC) is an independent charity (1032154) set up in 1993. We are the only UK charity working at a national and international scale to improve lives by creating greener cities. We get stuck in with our dedicated volunteers to cultivate lasting change in neighbourhoods – whether it’s revitalising forgotten spaces, creating healthier environments or growing food with kids.
Our work focuses on areas of social and environmental deprivation, bringing together local communities to work on practical greening and educational projects in urban spaces. Through our work we place a special emphasis on the involvement of local people and especially disadvantaged people who often suffer barriers to participation and are disengaged from their local environment.
We currently deliver projects in cities throughout the UK in cities including London, Reading, Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, Cardiff, Brighton, Nottingham, Peterborough, Bradford and others. We also deliver projects overseas in cities including Nairobi, Addis Ababa, La Paz and Ica.

We created Ecologi so people like you can actually take on the climate crisis. Our collective home is in the process of being turned totally upside down which is leading to strife for almost all life on Earth. We know it’s preventable. And we know it’s not going to save itself.
Ecologi is a platform for Climate Action, helping individuals, families, and businesses become Climate Positive. We do this by reducing your carbon footprint through the funding of quality climate solutions. Oh, and we also grow real and virtual forests! From a standing start in mid 2019, Ecologi is now considered a market leader having funded the planting of over 25 million trees and offset nearly 950,000 tonnes of CO2e.
