Trees and Planters on New Cathedral Street
During the "Trees of Hope" event, it was stated that once the event was over, the trees would remain in the city centre but their final locations weren't specified. Now that the messages of support have been removed to the remembrance archive, it appears that the trees from Cathedral Gardens, outside the National Football Museum, and Exchange Square have been moved to New Cathedral Street and paired up with those already there. I don't know if this is to be their permanent location or whether they and their planters will be moved again later.
Trees of Hope, Manchester 2018

The ‘trees of Hope’ trail was one of the events organised to mark the first anniversary of the terrorist bomb attack on the Manchester Arena which killed 22 concert-goers as they left a concert by American singer, Ariana Grande on 22 May 2017.

The trail features 28 Japanese maple trees placed in planters, each sporting the bee logo, along a route from Victoria Station to St Ann’s Square. From Saturday 19 May to Sunday 27 May inclusive, anyone wishing to leave a message of tribute, solidarity and love was able to attach it to one of the trees using specially-designed cardboard tags. At the end of the Trees of Hope event, all of the messages will be preserved and kept – alongside tributes left last year – in an archive of the city’s response to the attack. It is intended that the trees themselves will remain in the city centre.
