- Planting a tree as a memorial
Woodland Trust you can certainly sponsor a tree but tbh it doesn’t feel that memorial-ish, there’s not that much “ownership” or whatever and it’ll go in managed woodland, they reserve the right to chop it down.
If I was going to do this, I’d probably just go and find a suitable spot in a suitable bit of woods- field edge, local parkland where a tree’s died, something like this. Do a bit of breaking-and-gardening. Though having said that I could probably organise something with our estates office, we’ve got loads of interesting trees on site, one more wouldn’t hurt.Posted 4 years ago
Does anyone have experience of this please? I’ve checked out the Woodland Trust website and the woods currently available are in a different part of the country.
Basically looking for somewhere that has public access and obviously appreciate that a plaque will not be permitted.
Thanks as always. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for the replies. ‘Lifeforalife’ doesn’t have any sites nearby. It really needs to be somewhere that is appropriate for personal reflection and the reasonably newly planted wood that I had in mind unfortunately doesn’t want any more trees. I may try to contact the Warden.
Edit: yes, Woodland Trust offer a ‘dedication’ that, imo, amounts to nothing very much.Posted 4 years ago
