Dedicate to someone special
What better way to show some love for the environment and the special someone in your life than by dedicating a tree in the National Forest this Valentine's Day? Not only is it gift that will last a life time, you will also be sharing your love of the Forest, contributing towards a greener, healthier and more sustainable future.
Whatever your reason for dedicating, each order comes with a personalised certificate and a preferred choice of tree species from a selection available - please note that we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to plant your preferred species. Trees are planted during the next available planting season, which runs from November to March, and orders placed from 1 January 2023 onwards will be planted during the 2023/24 season. Trees are around 40-60cm tall – the perfect size for establishing themselves in their new home and, following the end of the planting season, we’ll be in touch confirming the location of the young woodland, but please note individual trees are not marked in any way.
Our saplings available to choose from
The wise old oak tree. A symbol of strength and survival, this sacred species provides rich habitats for wildlife, with many enjoying its falling acorns as a food source.
With its wonderful red buds, beautiful bark spine, and large heart-shaped green leaves, the lime is perfect for birds and insects. Particularly, it is a favourite of the endangered honey bee.
The leaves of the magical hazel tree turn yellow in autumn, covering our landscape in colour before creating a beautiful yellow pathway when they fall. A species perfect for dormice and caterpillars.
The birch trees light open canopy provides the perfect conditions for bluebells, violets, grass and moss to thrive on the Forest floor. You may also find a nesting bird or two inside its trunk.
An alder tree can live up to 200 years. Its flowers grow in dense clusters of cream and white, and after pollination, develop into striking red fruits - a rich source of food for wildlife.
The leaves of a wild hornbeam tree change colour throughout the year, creating a beautiful year-round display. Beginning with a deep green before fading into orange and a deep crimson in autumn.
