Manchester City of Trees

City of Trees is an innovative and exciting movement set to re-invigorate Greater Manchester’s landscape by transforming underused, unloved woodland and planting a tree for every man, woman and child who lives there, within a generation.

We believe that trees are essential to the future of our towns and cities, and a City of Trees is one that is healthier, more resilient and more prosperous.

Initiated by The Oglesby Charitable Trust, and Community Forest Trust, this ambitious movement is securing a much greener, more resilient and pleasant environment that everyone can enjoy.

Our goals

  • 3 million trees planted, one for every man, woman and child across Greater Manchester
  • 2,000 hectares of unmanaged woodland brought back into a productive state
  • Connect people to the trees and woods around them
