Volunteer with City of Trees and become a Citizen Forester

Whether you’re a green guru, an eager novice or just fancy helping out occasionally at some tree planting or orchard creation - we want to hear from you!

Whether you give 1 day, 1 hour or 1 week, by becoming a Citizen Forester, you're spreading the word about the City of Trees movement and helping us to achieve our vision of planting a tree for every man, woman and child across Greater Manchester.

 

How do I get involved?

  1. Check out our events calendar – From litter picking to tree planting, wildflower creation and much more, we hold both one-off events and regular monthly sessions for those of you who want to get out and get active in the great outdoors.
