Red Rose Forest Maps

Red Rose Forest is helping to transform a large part of Greater Manchester into a greener, better place to live, work and invest in.

Red Rose Forest is creating new areas of woodland, helping to improve existing green spaces and encouraging thousands of people every year to visit their local park, woodland, nature reserve or community garden - discovering the countryside that is right on their doorstep!

Red Rose Forest is also making a huge impact on the North West region, increasing tree cover, encouraging investment and visitors to the area and playing a vital role in making England's North West a greener, more rewarding place to live, work, visit and do business.

Red Rose Forest is a partnership of The Countryside Agency, the Forestry Commission and the Metropolitan Boroughs of Bolton, Bury, Trafford and Wigan and the Cities of Manchester and Salford.
A wider partnership is actively involved in developing the Forest in many different ways across the Forest area. This partnership includes landowners, businesses, Government agencies, environmental and voluntary bodies, Countryside Services, communities, schools and many individuals.
