​City of Trees: Tackling the Climate Emergency One Tree at a Time

Trees are essential to our planet. They provide us with oxygen, clean our air, and help to regulate the climate. But trees are also under threat. Climate change, deforestation, and other factors are putting trees at risk.

That's where City of Trees comes in. City of Trees is a charity that is dedicated to planting trees and restoring woodlands in Greater Manchester, UK. They believe that trees are essential to tackling the climate emergency, and they are working hard to plant as many trees as possible.

City of Trees has a number of different projects that they are working on, including:

  • Planting trees in urban areas

  • Restoring woodlands

  • Educating people about the importance of trees

City of Trees is a registered charity, and they rely on donations to fund their work. We have partnered with the organisation to support their work through our Every Review Plants a Tree pledge.

This means that, for every review we receive this year, we’ll donate the funds to plant a tree in the Greater Manchester region.

Not only this, but as a member of the City of Trees 100 Trees Club, we will be taking part in volunteer days throughout the year to plant trees and clean up Manchester’s green spaces.

Why are trees so important?

Trees are essential to the environment for a number of reasons. They:

  • Provide oxygen

  • Help to regulate the climate

  • Filter air and water

  • Provide habitat for wildlife

  • Improve air quality

  • Reduce noise pollution

  • Boost property values

  • Increase biodiversity

  • Promote physical activity and mental wellbeing

How can you help?

If you’ve worked with MERJE and would like to leave us a Google review, we’ll plant a tree on your behalf!

Let's work together to plant trees and save the planet!
