Nut Bank formed the start of the Life for a Life’s growing partnership with Manchester City Council. The planting area was originally part of the ‘Pike Fold’ golf course and after extensive landscaping works and investment by the charity the memorial forest was officially opened in 2008.
Around the memorial planting area, has a mixed hedgerow planted around the board to help protect the memorial trees for many years. The hedge also helps to improve the areas biodiversity by providing a mixture of habitats for local wildlife and birds other than the surrounding areas of mixed grassland. To enhance the sites biodiversity further a small windfall orchard has also been planted, the orchard is made up of a mixture of apple, cherry, pear and plum trees and their blossom will most certainly help to attract pollinators.
** please note that ashes at this site are scattered with the memorial trees not interred.
