A dedication of a tree or area of woodland with the Woodland Trust is the perfect way for family, friends or godparents to celebrate a new birth, birthday or christening in a greener, environmentally friendly way.
Long after the cuddly toys have been packed away in the loft and the knitted hats and booties have been handed down, the tree or grove dedicated to your child will still be growing - into a majestic landmark in a wood you can visit and enjoy whenever you wish.
Your gift of a dedicated tree or woodland area will grow with your child and can be enjoyed by all the family. When they are old enough they can visit the wood to watch the seasons change and learn about nature first hand.
And because the Woodland Trust is the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity, every dedication directly helps woods, trees and wildlife.
Choose from newly created sites to enchanting mature woods, all open for you to visit for free. Whichever you choose, your gift will keep growing and give pleasure for generations to come while helping wildlife and the environment.
Penny Griffiths, a Woodland Trust supporter from Bewdley, wanted to celebrate her newborn in a less commercial way than buying teddies and racks of clothes, so decided to mark the occasion with an environmentally friendly dedication instead. She said: “I couldn’t think of a better way to welcome a new baby than dedicating a tree that will grow with them.”
