Greater Manchester Tree Month

London have their very own tree week but as the late Tony Wilson said, one of the founders of Factory Records, “This is Manchester, we do things differently here”… so we’re launching the first ever Greater Manchester Tree Month throughout November, celebrating the awesome trees and woods across the city region.

From ‘trees and bees’, celebrating our pollinators, to highlighting our green heroes, as well as where to go in Greater Manchester there really is something for everyone to get involved with.

  • Week 1: Trees & Bees: (1- 8 Nov) - Manchester is synonymous with bees, but all our pollinators are crucial for biodiversity with many of them relying on trees, woods and green spaces to survive
  • Week 2: GM’s Green Heroes (9 -15 Nov) - From planting trees to keeping green space in good shape volunteers are at the heart of a greener Greater Manchester
  • Week 3: Love Parks GM (16 – 22 Nov) Greater Manchester is home to a myriad of local parks and green spaces which are great for both people and wildlife
  • Week 4:  Tree Time (23 – 30 November) Trees may be the best solution to our climate emergency; multi-functional living tools that help make our urban areas more resilient to climate change
