Northern Quarter Street Tree Project
Working in partnership with Red Rose Forest, we are currently working on a large scale project to plant street trees along several connecting streets in Manchester's Northern Quarter.
The first phase of the Northern Quarter Street Tree Project will see 12 ‘Spire’ cherry blossom trees planted along Tariff Street.
The second phase will see 29-32 trees planted along the length of Hilton Street.
The project will culminate in trees along Dale Street, creating an ‘Alternative Green Walking Route’ from Piccadilly Station into Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
Red Rose Forest is the Community Forest for central and western Greater Manchester, working with local communities, businesses and partners, they develop well-wooded, multipurpose landscapes and improve the quality of life in the area. They are currently working to transform a large part of Greater Manchester into a greener, healthier and more satisfying place to live, work and invest. The Red Rose Forest partnership has been invaluable to A New Leaf, with Red Rose Forest using their expertise to project manage the planting and installation of the NQ trees and support fundraising initiatives.
