City of Trees in action

As well as being a movement and bringing together committed partners who share in our vision of planting a tree for every man, woman and child in Greater Manchester - we also deliver a number of practical initiatives across the region.

Our projects are focussed around;

  • Planting trees, creating and managing woodlands - We work with landowners and volunteers to plant trees, create new woodlands and bring unused or unloved woodland back to life
  • Urban orchards - We plant fruit trees and train local people to look after them, so more communities can get outside and spend time together
  • School projects - We plant trees in schools, create outdoor classrooms as well as engage children to strengthen their relationship with trees, woods and wildlife
  • GreenStreets - We turn gloomy streets into gorgeous green backdrops by planting street trees in the urban environment

We also arrange guided nature walks and co-ordinate volunteer sessions to keep green space in good shape. We undertake innovative research projects and aim to influence policy to ensure the future of our trees and woods.
