A City Forest Park for Manchester City of Trees
Under an ambitious new urban scheme titled ‘City of Trees’, Manchester will be home to a total of 3 million new trees to be planted over the next 25 years. To date, 94,380 trees have been planted which includes 318 street trees and 846 fruit-bearing trees. All initiated by The Oglesby Charitable Trust, and Community Forest Trust.
Why 3 million?
The current population of the Greater Manchester metropolitan area (the city proper is home to just over a half-million residents). As such, a tree will be planted for each and every Mancunian — every man, woman and child hailing from Blackrod to Broadbottom and everywhere in between — while an additional 2,000 hectares of neglected and overlooked existing woodland will be revived.
