Heritage Lottery Fund gives £646,00 to Manchester tree project

The Greater Manchester Heritage Trees Project will celebrate citizen's stories, photos and memories.

The Red Rose Forest charity will lead the scheme and a tree audit it carried out estimated Greater Manchester is home to 10 million trees, with 15 in the ‘Trees in Need of TLC' category.

HLF North West head Sara Hilton said: "People in Greater Manchester are passionate about their tree heritage - with people often mobilising to save trees or areas of woodland which may be under threat.

"This project will tap into that passion to ensure we look after this part of our natural heritage, conserve it and learn more about its value and its place in our lives."

A Wythenshawe Park Oak and Jubilee Park, Wigan yew are part of the project.
