What people say about Plant a Tree
"Please could you pass our thanks onto Lindsey and all those involved in the tree planting day last March. We had a lovely day - it was well organised with friendly and courteous people. It was a big event for our 2 year old who wore his badge with pride for ages afterwards! We were also delighted to receive, just a week later, a CD of photos taken of our family on the day - fantastic!"
Nicola, Leigh and Edward Davis
Holly planted 250 trees for her late husband, who had lived and worked in Leicestershire. A party of over 40 people attended to plant oak, ash and birch trees. "Everybody thinks it's a wonderful idea. Here is a memorial for Harvey that everybody participated in and his children and grandchildren can come and stand in this spot and know that people who loved him planted the trees," reflected Holly.
Holly Taylor, Virginia, USA
"We have planted a tree at each site since the scheme began. We keep coming back as we love the planting day itself and love the fact that each site has public access."
Emma Barnes & The Thompson Family, Clifton Campville
"A Lovely experience. We were welcomed so joyously. All the staff were anxious to explain the whole concept of The National Forest. Ten of us were in our party and we were still made welcome!"
Mrs Ann Staniland, Yorkshire
"A gift that lasts a lifetime."

"It is a perfect way to commemorate a special day or the passing of a loved one whilst improving our present environment and having a legacy for future generations."
Graham Morris, Yorkshire
"A lovely way to celebrate my absent (on holiday in China) husband's 60th birthday - I e-mailed him the pictures. Such a feel good occasion for me and the planet!"
Margaret Harvey, Shrewsbury
"A good vehicle for giving gifts to people who don't want or need material things but who appreciate the opportunity to participate in the growth of The National Forest."
John Taylor, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire
"A scheme whereby the family can have a fun day out, choosing and planting a tree, whilst contributing towards the creation of the forest for the future."

"Nice experience, beautiful location, excellent service from start to finish."
