Somewhere to smile, cry and remember

Woods are a haven of peace and tranquillity – perfect for quiet reflection when a loved one has passed on.

The Woodland Trust can offer you the chance to dedicate trees or woodland to someone after they have gone. Imagine having somewhere beautiful to visit and remember them for generations to come.

A dedication of a tree or larger area of woodland, with the opportunity to add a bench or grove post with your personal message, is a lasting way to commemorate a life.

Some days you might visit alone and cry, other days you might bring young family and smile.

The wood you choose to dedicate in will carry on living, growing and changing, giving new life to nature and linking past, present and future. To say thank you for your support the Trust will send you a beautiful certificate personalised with your own message of dedication, an information sheet about your chosen wood and a location map.

Personal and unique

Each tree or woodland area is dedicated once only, so every dedication is personal and unique – maybe a wildflower glade, a sunny hilltop, or a lichen-covered riverbank.

Locations range from magnificent, ancient woodland to fresh newly planted woods – each one extremely special.

You’ll be making a difference to the future of the UK’s woods and trees by helping the Woodland Trust continue protecting, restoring and creating woodland and wildlife habitats for years to come.
