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 and managing woodlands - We work with landowners to bring unused or unloved woodland back to life and find places to plant new ones
  • Urban orchards - We create community orchards and provide training for local people to help maintain them 
  • School projects - We help schools plant trees to create outdoor classrooms and support teachers to develop nature based activities
  • GreenStreets - We plant street trees in new developments, town centres and residential areas to transform the look and feel of 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.
