About Street Trees in Sheffield
Sheffield’s trees and woodlands are one of the city’s greatest natural assets and contribute to its reputation as one of the greenest cities in the UK. Street Trees provide many benefits for the people of Sheffield, making urban areas and local neighbourhoods more attractive and healthy places to live and work. There is strong and growing evidence that exposure to trees increases physical and mental health wellbeing, as well as supporting the ecology and biodiversity of the city.
Street trees are a crucial part of the city’s urban forest. They provide shade and shelter, help to clean the air, reduce the risk of flooding, and connect people to nature on their doorstep.
Sheffield Street Tree Partnership Strategy
A commitment to deliver on a new street tree strategy for Sheffield has been made by the founding members of the Sheffield Street Tree Partnership.
The strategy aims to ensure the city has street trees which are well-maintained and cared for; resistant to the threats of disease and climate change and delivering many benefits for people and our environment.
