My Tree

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?
