CEAS staff volunteer for City of Trees initiative

Staff from the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science (CEAS) have volunteered to help plant tree saplings as part of the Greater Manchester City of Trees movement.

The initiative pledges to plant three million trees for every person who lives in the region, and more than 20 CEAS volunteers - including both academic and professional services staff - took to Crompton Moor, Oldham on Wednesday, 3 April to take part.

The team planted around 300 trees and coped with all types of weather on the day, including sunshine, rain and even snow. It was the School's volunteering signature event, and forms part of both its social responsibility agenda and wellbeing initiatives.

City of Trees is an innovative and exciting movement set to reinvigorate Greater Manchester's landscape. It will transform underused, unloved woodland by planting a tree for every man, woman and child who lives there. To date, there have been 459,929 trees planted.

Find out more about this great initiative on the City of Trees website.
