Baretrees (or Bare Trees) is a residential area of Chadderton in the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham, in Greater Manchester, England. It takes its name from a former hamlet in the north east of the town in what is now the Laburnum Avenue area.[1]

One of the fifteen fatalities of the Peterloo Massacre, Thomas Buckley, was from the hamlet of Bare Trees. Buckley, a gardner aged 62, was described by his neighbours as a 'person fanciful to the fruit garden, a staunch patriot, an enemy to oppression'. Buckley was bayoneted and slashed by a sabre.
