Plantatree in The National Forest: Could There be a Better Gift for your Mum?

Tuesday, 16th February 2010

Celebrating mothers by day planting a tree

Buy Plantatree in The National Forest and you will receive a certificate with your own special message to your mum, and an invitation for you both to take part in a special tree planting day in the Forest. 

In the words of a mum who has already planted her Plantatree:  ‘Many thanks for a great and memorable day. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.  It is very special to actually plant the trees, a chance for a wonderful day together.’

On the day, you will be greeted by National Forest staff and have the choice of a tiny oak, ash or birch ‘whip’ (young tree) to plant. Your tree will be part of a new woodland in The National Forest, contributing to one of the biggest and boldest environmental initiatives in the country.

Spades are provided – you just need to wrap up warm and wear your wellies!  There are foresters on site to help, and to tell you more about the trees, the woodland and the wildlife it will attract.

The woodland will always be open for you to visit, and you can return at any time throughout the seasons and see how the trees are growing.

Plantatree costs £25, which reflects the true cost of the tree and the future care of the trees and the woodland.  Click here to buy online or call the National Forest Company on 01283 551211.
