Show mum you care this Mother’s Day by giving her the gift of peace and quiet

Written by Woodland Trust
Every mother deserves a little bit of 'me' time once in a while. There's nowhere better to get away from the stress and noise of modern life than by escaping to a wood. What better gift to give mum this Mother's Day than a tree or woodland dedication with the Woodland Trust. Walking in woods and among trees is a proven way to clear the mind and improve your mental and physical wellbeing – a perfect escape for a busy mum.

As the UK's largest woodland conservation charity, the Woodland Trust has woods all over the country with dedications available. Each dedication is unique - we only allow trees or areas of woodland to be dedicated once and all Woodland Trust woods are free to enter so mum can visit for some peace whenever she wants. Dedications last a lifetime, growing and changing as the years pass, giving wildlife a home.

So this Mother's Day, show mum how much you care about her with a thoughtful and beautiful gift that will be around much longer than a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates. With a suggested donation from just £15, each dedication comes with a personalised certificate especially designed for Mother's Day and wood information pack all about the chosen wood.

Individual trees as well as larger areas of woodland can be dedicated, and for dedications of an acre or more the Woodland Trust offers the option to upgrade with a wooden bench or marker post and personalised plaque.

Tree dedications can also be emailed to mum instantly – so there's no need for a last minute gift panic!
