Tree Action Plan

The tree action plan forms part of the green and blue infrastructure strategy. Our vision is to secure a long-term future for our trees and woodlands for generations to come, providing the right management and strong protection, ensuring their positive contribution to a growing, world class city, recognised for its dynamic and sustainable economy and high quality of life.

The action plan has been developed together with a range of organisations and agencies, covering existing and new partner commitments. It is a list of actions to be delivered by our partners and stakeholders, demonstrating true commitment to a sensible, sustainable and essential future for trees and woodlands in the city.

Principles of Tree Management

We have a commitment to trees, they are an integral part of what makes Manchester a vibrant, attractive and liveable city. The responsibility for trees, from planting to management, is not always obvious. This document provides a resource for tree-related queries in Manchester. It is intended to inform and help, and to save time.  

Our tree management principles will help us all to understand the value of our tree stock and how sensitive, consistent and appropriate management practices will help protect this resource for generations to come.
