Every tree tells a story… Red Rose Forest’s brand new exciting Heritage Trees project aims to reconnect people across Greater Manchester with our tree heritage. This ambitious four year project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and will work with people and communities to develop a fantastic interactive website which will hold a comprehensive collection of information about the physical and social significance of our tree heritage. In order to do this you’ll be managing volunteers to help collect facts, information and stories from a wide range of people… we believe that everyone has a story about a tree.
You will also be responsible for delivering a busy programme of activities and events giving people the opportunity to learn about, care for, and plant new trees and woodlands within our landscape.
Our office is based in Salford but you’ll be working across Greater Manchester, with particular emphasis in parts of Manchester, Trafford, Salford, Wigan and Rochdale.
