New sponsorship scheme for street trees

Residents are being invited to sponsor trees in local streets as part of a scheme supported by Harrow Council.

Under the Harrow – Sponsor a Street Tree scheme, families can pay for a tree to be planted near their home.

Residents can choose where the tree will be planted – as long as the location is suitable – and will be encouraged to look after their tree.

The cost of sponsoring a tree is £195 if you take on the job of watering it.

Or you can make a sponsorship donation of £295, which means Harrow Council will water the tree.

The sponsorship package includes a 3-4 metre staked tree with a wire mesh tree protector.
