The perfect gift that grows with your little one

Woodland Trust

Are you looking for something other than a teether or cuddly toy to give as a birthday gift? For a unique and meaningful present that won’t be outgrown, broken, or packed away in the loft, the Woodland Trust tree and woodland dedications would make the perfect present, benefiting woods and wildlife across the UK too

Dedicate a tree in the name of a baby as a gift to mark their birth, birthday or even Christening. You can choose an individual tree, or even team up with friends or family and dedicate a larger area of woodland, maybe even with a bench or engraved marker post.The trees or area of woodland will grow and change with them as the years pass, and together you’ll make priceless memories that last a lifetime; summer picnics in dappled sunlight, their first time jumping in muddy puddles on a wet spring day, kicking up leaves on a crisp autumn morning or hunting for twigs to give a snowman some arms. Dedications also directly support the Woodland Trust’s work with woods, trees and wildlife all over the UK. A dedication will do wonderful things for the environment and the birds, insects and mammals that call our woods home.

There are dozens of free-to-visit Woodland Trust woods with dedications available all over the UK, each with its own special, unique character. Choose from grand old ancient woodlands or newly planted sites; many of its woods near London are perfect for a daytrip with the family – especially with warmer weather on the way. Look out for snowdrops in February and beautiful bluebells in April and May, and see how many butterflies you can spot as summer approaches.

To say thank you for dedicating, the Woodland Trust will send a special pack containing a beautiful commemorative certificate, detailed wood information sheet and a map so you can easily find your way around the woodland.

It really is the gift to last a lifetime.
