A gift for nature lovers: dedicate a tree

Over the next few years, we will be replanting the many tens of thousands of trees lost to recent winter storms across Scotland. This Father’s Day, dedicate a tree to your dad and we’ll send a personalised certificate for you to give to them.

Dedicate a tree today

Every donation helps us plant a tree in one of the many woodlands we’re restoring across Scotland. £7.50 will help us plant one sapling; £75 will help us plant ten!

Your gift will help us restore our damaged forests and restore Scotland’s beautiful green spaces, so that natural ecosystems can continue to thrive in the future.
