Join Us for Our Next Tree Planting Dates in 2020

Many people want a place to go that is peaceful to reflect on their time with a family member, a friend or even a beloved pet. It can sometimes be hard to find a place which offers beauty, tranquillity and a special spot just for you. This is what we aim to do with our tree planting events that occur twice a year at the National Forest in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire.

With our tree planting service, you can choose to plant in memory of your loved one or have us do it for you.

  • Simply choose the sapling from a variety of trees
  • Find your spot
  • Start planting.

As well as your tree, you also have a brass plaque in the shape of a leaf, which can say a few words for your loved one that will then be added to a copper tree along with other messages. This experience can help keep the memory alive as well as going on to support others through a recent bereavement or at key moments of the year that may have been special to you or them.

For the Tree Planting Experience we would suggest a donation of £150 to take part, or we can plant a tree on your behalf for a suggested donation of £50.

Our tree planting dates have now been released for 2020. These will be occurring on 21st March and 14th November. For more information on the day’s events, or how to book your place to attend our next tree planting, click here.
