Tree Audit PDF Print E-mail



Manchester is one of the first Cities in the Country to undertake a comprehensive survey of the extent of tree cover across the City. It is a groundbreaking piece of work which has stimulated interest both locally and nationally (See Attached Guardian Article). Working with Red Rose Forest and using detailed Aerial Photography Interpretation (API) , all wards in the City are being assessed. When completed by May 2009, it will provide us with a idea of where the highest concentrations of tree cover are, and how they are made up in terms of street trees, trees in parks, gardens, etc.
