Hun­dreds of trees planted in scheme


MOrE than 400 new trees have been planted in schools across the rochdale bor­ough.

De­vel­op­ment firm Prop­erty Al­liance Group worked along­side en­vi­ron­men­tal char­ity City of Trees to bring a na­ture­based pro­gramme of ac­tiv­i­ties to 12 schools, in­volv­ing 600 pupils and in­clud­ing both class­room ac­tiv­i­ties and tree plant­ing in the grounds.

Prop­erty Al­liance Group was founded by CEO David rus­sell, who was born and raised in rochdale.

He said: “Hav­ing grown up in Kirkholt, I’m re­ally proud to be giv­ing some­thing back to the com­mu­nity I grew up in.

“As a group we try to fo­cus on sup­port­ing ini­tia­tives that en­cour­age and sup­port chil­dren through learn­ing, play and ex­pe­ri­ences.

“City of Trees is a great ex­am­ple of this and a very im­por­tant ini­tia­tive for Greater Manch­ester as it will cre­ate a vis­i­ble and healthy legacy for our chil­dren and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

“We’re de­lighted to have played a part in teach­ing chil­dren about the im­por­tance of na­ture and pro­vided the op­por­tu­nity to plant new trees that the chil­dren will be able to en­joy dur­ing their life­time.”

City of Trees also held ses­sions at Touch­stones mu­seum around tree ID and folk­lore, and schools work­shops were held us­ing den­drol­ogy – the study of tree rings – to re­search the local his­tory of an area, with ac­tiv­i­ties tak­ing place at Holling­worth Lake in rochdale.

Beth Kel­sall from City of Trees said: “This fan­tas­tic ini­tia­tive helped to con­nect chil­dren with the na­ture right on their doorstep, giv­ing them unique hands-on learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.

“We are hugely grate­ful for the sup­port of Prop­erty Al­liance Group as with­out their com­mit­ment this wouldn’t have been pos­si­ble.

“Ses­sions such as these are es­pe­cially im­por­tant in today’s tech­nol­ogy-fo­cused world and demon­strate to chil­dren the value of our trees, woods and wildlife.” IF you have ever thought about im­prov­ing your teeth then head down to The Smile Cen­tre to see what the team can do for you.
