The 2014-15 tree planting season will see more street trees planted across Merseyside as part of the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
Street trees will be planted in Knowsley, St Helens, Liverpool and Sefton through a programme called Merseyside Green Streets, creating an improved green link between places of residence and employment.
So far, over 10 kilometres of trees have been planted in Wirral as part of this programme, and now the project is set to focus on other areas of Merseyside.
Ben Greenaway, Green Streets Coordinator at The Mersey Forest, said: "Building on the success of recent deliveries across the region, we're eagerly anticipating the tree-planting season so that we can deliver further green routes that will encourage people to walk and cycle more'.
"These trees will provide many added benefits to people, places, and the economy, including improving air quality, helping neighbourhoods to adapt to climate change, and improving the appearance of the streets, boosting investor confidence and stimulating the local economy."
During the project, schools and communities will be actively pledging to walk, cycle and look after the many trees planted as part of the programme.

The tree planting is funded by the Local Sustainable Transport Fund through Merseytravel and the Department of Transport and by Forestry Commission's Setting the Scene for Growth Programme and Green Infrastructure Programme through The Department of Business Innovation and Skills.
The project is also supported by European project Interreg ForeStClim.
