Trees in The Green Park primarily consist of plane and lime. Both are of great benefit to the surrounding area. As well as providing a cooler microclimate in hot summers, they can actually help improve air quality by absorbing vehicle fumes and filtering out harmful pollutants.

A number of more unusual trees can also be found in the park including the black poplar (Britain's rarest native timber tree, recognisable by its gnarled trunk), silver maples (distinguished by their finely cut silvery leaves) and silver limes (which have leaves that are a silvery white underneath).

There are also some native oaks and hawthorn- a tree that supports a lot of wildlife with its rich blossom providing nectar for insects in the spring and its berries proving food for birds in the autumn.
