First World War Centenary Woods

Hundreds of thousands of British lives were lost in the costly and devastating conflict between 1914-1918. One hundred years later, the Woodland Trust is creating four brand new woods, one in each nation of the UK, to honour those heroes and the sacrifices they made.

By planting millions of saplings across the British Isles and Ireland, we will help our
native flora and fauna, increasing biodiversity and creating wildlife corridors to allow species to thrive.

We need your help to deliver this £20million project. Your donation, no matter how small, will go directly to the purchase, creation and future management of each Centenary Wood, preserving them as national living memorials that will live on for hundreds of years.
