Dedicate a Grove

Our Groves

Individuals and families can contribute to the National Forest by donating to support the planting of a complete woodland grove. Groves are groups of trees separate from the main woodland, designed to create an open woodland landscape. Our Groves vary in size, from 200 to 600+ trees.

Leaving a Legacy

Dedicating a grove in your name or in the name of a loved one will mean you are helping to secure a long term future for the Forest for everyone. Helping to make a landscape rich in wildlife, and providing new footpaths and woodlands to explore and enjoy. Your grove is a positive contribution to the environment.

Recognising your Grove

Should you wish to, you can choose to place a discreet brass plaque with your dedication on site. Options for different plaque content are available.

Permanency of your dedication

A grove dedication in the National Forest remains active for 25 years. During this time your support will enable the new trees to have time to fully establish and grow into mature woodland. All of our woodlands are planted with sustainability in mind, ensuring that we are creating a Forest that can be enjoyed for many years to come. We ensure that we plant mixed species woodlands; tailoring species to the soil types, topography and landscape surrounding each site.

More information

We ask for donations of £3,000 to £9,000+, depending on the number of trees you would like to dedicate.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept any requests from businesses to dedicate groves. If you are a business looking for ways to support the National Forest please take a look at our Business Partner pages and get in touch to discuss how you can become part of our Mycelium Network – the enterprise ecosystem of the National Forest.

Dedicate a Landscape Tree

We are also able to offer a dedication of a single landscape tree set amongst beautiful parkland in the heart of The National Forest. The tree includes a plaque and the opportunity to attend a dedication day; and it is ideal for reflecting and celebrating a life or milestone. Each Dedicate a Landscape Tree costs £500. Please contact us for more information.
