Sponsor a tree

The Tree Sponsorship scheme, managed jointly by St Albans City and District Council and St Albans Civic Society, was re-launched in 2011 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Civic Society.

If you would like to sponsor a tree in memory of a loved one, in honour of an organisation or an event, you can choose a tree and a location from the table below showing where new trees are needed in parks and green spaces. To see the proposed position, just click on the tree reference number.

All sponsored trees listed for order by the end of September each year, will be delivered in one batch from the suppliers. They will be planted in the Winter season, which is the best time.

The cost will vary depending upon the tree and the suppliers’ prices at the time of ordering but will also include the planting and all materials required to plant it and we provide two years dedicated maintenance with watering.

Examples: a Cherry is approximately £157 and a Maidenhair is approximately £231 (please note these figures are for guidance only). In the unfortunate event that a sponsored tree should die or be vandalised, the Council will replace it free of charge. An estimate can be given if you telephone the Council’s Landscape and Trees Section on 01727 866100 or email at trees@stalbans.gov.uk. You may also reserve a specific tree for up to 14 days.

Please first read the Terms and Conditions and then use the application form below to register your interest. Please send to our Trees and Woodlands section.

Tree Sponsorship Book and web pages

If you wish, an artist commissioned by the Civic Society will create a dedicated page in the Tree Sponsorship Book illustrating your chosen tree and including a short message or dedication, at no extra cost.

Selected pages of this book will be displayed in a case in the reception area of the Council offices. Any new pages, from September 2011 onwards, will be put on the Tree Sponsorship Book web pages (with your permission), so friends and relatives anywhere in the world can view it online.
