If you love nature, why not put tree and woodland dedications on your gift list with the Woodland Trust, and create lasting memories of a very special day?
Making your wedding memorable and different can be a challenge for any bride and groom. By putting tree or woodland dedications on your gift list instead of toasters and vouchers, you can do something amazing for nature with a living and growing talking point that will always be remembered by your friends and loved ones.
Tree and woodland dedications from the Woodland Trust are a meaningful and lasting way of ensuring your special day stands out for all the right reasons. Individual trees and groves ranging from a quarter acre to an acre or more can be dedicated in a choice of beautiful woods all over the UK – some young and full of promise, others majestic and mature. And because each tree or area is only dedicated once, each dedication will be unique too.
In order to keep the woods as natural as possible individual trees are not marked in any way. But groves of an acre or bigger can be upgraded to feature a personalised bench or marker post with your own message of love.
Woodland Trust supporter Vanessa Watchman wanted to do something unique to mark her wedding day that would also support a charity:
“We asked friends and family to donate to a charity wedding gift fund rather than buy us gifts. I had always dreamed of planting an acre of oaks and leaving something behind for the next generation. A dedication therefore seemed a perfect choice for us. We chose to dedicate an acre and a grove post in Coed Cilgelynnen wood near Newport in Pembrokeshire – an area I love and where I went on holiday for the first 18 summers of my life.”
Every dedication comes with a special wedding pack that’s yours to keep forever. Each pack includes a certificate, information about the wood itself and map to find your way around the wood so you can visit for years to come.
Trees and woodland can be dedicated in hundreds of Woodland Trust woods all over the UK and each dedication directly supports our work protecting this country’s woods and wildlife. All Woodland Trust woods and dedications are free to visit whenever you wish.
