The City of Trees project intends to plant 3 million new trees across Greater Manchester in an effort to make the city healthier, happier and more pleasant to live in.
The trees will be planted by a group of eco-volunteers attempting to regenerate overlooked, underused and unloved areas of the urban landscape in the city in the Northwest of England.
Organizers will also run planting projects in Manchester schools to raise awareness of the environment and reconnect inner city children with nature’s woodlands and wildlife.
New trees and woodlands provide essential habitats for local wildlife and go some way to protect global biodiversity, which is under threat from changes in the way land is used.
