Tree sponsorship

Lambeth Council is able to offer residents the opportunity to sponsor the planting of a new street or parks tree.

The current costs for sponsoring a tree to be planted is:

  • £380 for a tree in a park, which includes watering and initial aftercare for a period of three years
  • £480 for a street tree, which includes three years' watering and maintenance (the higher cost reflects the complexity of excavating hard surfaces and checking for utilities).

Contact us to enquire about either option.

These prices are for standard semi-mature trees. If you'd like a non-standard size or a special variety of tree, these may be subject to additional costs.

For more information, contact us just before the normal tree-planting season, which is October to March each year.
