Cambridge City Council


The trees on Cambridge’s streets, parks and gardens add to its unique character – as well as its biodiversity.

Trees improve the city’s climate – they produce oxygen, bind dust particles, and provide shade. This makes a vital contribution to the wellbeing of everybody who lives and works here.

Our Tree Strategy sets out how we manage trees to maximise their benefits. The links below will take you to more information about the city's trees and how you can get involved.

Our short video about trees in Cambridge introduces the work we do to plant and protect trees, and our free trees for babies scheme.

If you want to learn more about the city’s trees, take a walk along one of our tree trails. There’s one at Cherry Hinton Hall and another at the Accordia site off Brooklands Avenue. They’re about 1.5km long and you can use your smartphone to learn about the trees.
