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
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.
