Green Streets

Read a transcription of the video.

 

Green Streets is The Mersey Forest's programme of urban street tree planting that is improving our neighbourhoods and bringing communities together.

 

Thousands of street trees

Since 2007 we have worked with a wide range of partners to plant thousands of street trees to brighten neighbourhoods across Merseyside and North Cheshire, delivering the following benefits:

REDUCING AIR POLLUTION Street trees improve air quality by absorbing pollutants and  intercepting harmful particulates. FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE
Increasing tree cover in towns and cities
by just 10% can keep surface temperatures
at current levels despite climate change
(University of Manchester). IMPROVING IMAGE
Street trees improve the image of our
neighbourhoods and make them even
better places to live, work and invest. BUILDING COMMUNITIES
Getting residents involved in
caring for their trees helps them
re-connect with their neighbours. BOOSTING HEALTH
Research shows that children who live
in tree-lined streets have lower rates
of asthma (Columbia University, USA). BENEFITING WILDLIFE
As well as being great for people,
street trees also offer much needed
habitat for wildlife too.


Funding and case studies

Green Streets is funded through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund, Forestry Commission's Setting the Scene for Growth project and by a range of Council and partner environmental programmes. Here's a taster of some of the communities we've worked with to enhance people's neighbourhoods and make our towns and cities even better places to live and work:
