Greater Manchester tree planting charity City of Trees is offering businesses the chance to leave a lasting legacy on their local landscape with a range of corporate partnership opportunities.

City of Trees aims to plant 3 million trees across Greater Manchester and is part of the Northern Forest initiative - an ambitious project to plant tens of millions of trees from Liverpool to Hull over the next 25 years.

The charity delivers a wide range of projects focused around planting trees and managing woodland, spending more than £1 million a year on its work.

There are a number of ways for businesses to show their support as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) and green ambitions, including joining the ‘100 Trees Club’ - a corporate membership scheme which pays for the planting of 100 trees per year. Members benefit from:

•  Use of 100 Trees Club logo

•  Exclusive volunteer employee days with other members

•  An annual networking event to meet like-minded businesses

•  Free supporter-level membership of the Support the Goals initiative, which helps businesses to take action and share progress towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Businesses can also support City of Trees through staff fundraising or project sponsorship, or employee volunteering through ‘Green Away Days’.

Existing supporters include Manchester manufacturer Duo UK. Instead of sending its usual gift hampers to clients at Christmas, the company made a donation of £5,000 to fund the planting of 500 trees, as well as donating staff time to help plant trees at a local school.
