Written by Woodland TrustSomewhere 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 and cry, on other days you'll smile. You might come alone or with friends or even young family as they grow.
The wood you choose to dedicate in will carry on living, growing and changing for generations, giving new life to nature and linking past, present and future.
The Woodland Trust has decades of experience with woodland dedications. Our sympathetic and knowledgeable team will handle the whole process. When arrangements have been completed you'll receive a beautiful certificate personalised with your own message of dedication, an information sheet about your chosen wood and a location map.
Personal and unique
Dedications range in size from a single tree to a quarter of an acre up to an acre or more. Groves of more than an acre can also be personalised with a bench or grove post in selected woods.
Each tree or woodland area is dedicated once only, so every dedication is personal and unique – your chosen area could be 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 also be making a difference to the future of the UK's woods and trees by helping us continue our work protecting, restoring and creating woodland and wildlife habitats for years to come.
