Residents in Greater Manchester could soon see greener horizons as more than 900 trees are planted for a new environmental project.
Organisers want to improve people's quality of life
Chorlton residents are taking part in the Trees for Cities charity initiative and will be getting their hands dirty at the weekend.
The tree planting will start on Saturday at Hough End Playing Fields in south Manchester.
Local primary schools are also taking part in the planting programme.
Last year, in partnership with the Red Rose Forest, the charity planted more than 1,400 trees in Greater Manchester.
The organisers of the project want to improve the quality of life for people who live and work in the Manchester area.
Graham Simmonds, chief executive for Trees for Cities, said: "Trees are so important to the quality of life for everyone who lives and works in our cities."
On the community planting day itself, participants are urged to wear stout boots and waterproofs as they will be encouraged to get their hands dirty.
All tools, equipment and protective gloves will be provided.
