Project Greenstreets is a unique program that encompasses an array of urban forestry activities. Its mission is to improve the environmental quality of Manchester through the planting, care, and maintenance of many trees within the city parks, on school grounds, along streets, and at other city-owned properties. Project Greenstreets is administered by the Parks Department's Urban Forester.

Tree Planting
The tree-planting portion of the program has been very popular since it’s inception in 1981. The program is offered to Manchester residents to enhance our surroundings through the benefits that trees provide, including beautification, increased property values, air pollution reduction, shade and wildlife habitat. Funding for the program is met by a combination of tax dollars, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, and tree sales. If you wish to purchase a tree, or if you would like some information about the program, contact the Urban Forester.
