Trees improve student wellbeing, clean the air, encourage wildlife and look great! We should plant more trees on campus, as well as replace any trees that have been lost due to the building in and around campus. More trees should be planted in Peel Park and the Meadow. Vote for more trees!

    Great timing with masterplan. Might be good to, when this is voted on, asking for the SU to make representations at Salford Council demanding, on every individual planning application, to put in more trees, be that street trees or directly on campus. Planning committee will listen. But great idea and something I'll be supporting!

    Thank you everyone who is voting and being so active in this campaign!! We will be campaigning and heading into lectures to get more students to vote! If any of you could share this and get students to do the same! It be would amazing. If you see us with a placard come and say hi and get a photo with our big idea.

    How can you not want more trees? 😂 Btw if you want to go the extra, download Ecosia.org and set it as your default browser. Every 45 searches you do, they plant a tree 🌲

    I would love to see more trees planted, as the council are taking down so many trees in the peel park at the moment.

    Absolutely! The University does not have a great green and sustainability system in place so this could really help! Also we are 11 years until global climate catastrophe according to the UN... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-47723577

    More trees the better! Maybe even more bins too... So much litter with the warm weather...

    Young trees take in more Carbon Dioxide. The more trees the better!
