My imaginary oak is near Old Trafford on the outskirts of Manchester - but it could be on the edge of any big city.
My tree is an oak but you may love a different tree.
The Friends of Matty's Oak tries to explain -
What has the oak tree seen in it's long life?
It can't talk but can show us how it feels.
The people round about care for it -
Who were these people?
Who cares for it in the future?
