We’re happy to see you here! Trees for Cities are a proud partner of the ‘Be the Tree’ installation, giving you the unique opportunity to project your face onto an urban tree.

We are Trees for Cities, the only UK charity working at a national and international scale to improve lives by planting trees in cities. Just as Jasper Toeli, Be the Tree’s artist, wants to encourage us to physically connect to the nature around us, we break down barriers to nature by enabling communities to plant trees and cultivate lasting change.
