Leave a lasting legacy with a gift in your will
Without gifts left in wills, our work simply wouldn’t be possible. They plant nearly one in four of all the millions of trees we get into the ground. A third of all the wildlife havens we care for and create are also directly funded by legacies.

Why leave a gift in your will to the Woodland Trust?
Remembering the Woodland Trust in your will is the most significant, lasting way you can make a real difference for woods and trees.
Your legacy gift will:
- protect the places you love – saving woods and trees from destruction and helping fight against tree pests and diseases
- care for ancient woods which have outlived generations, making sure they’ll still be here far into the future
- make a lasting mark on the world and create a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife.

What your gift could mean
Whatever it's size, you can rest assured that any gift you leave will be spent where it's needed most - to benefit woods and trees, and the wildlife that relies on them.
could allow us to plant and care for 20 new native trees on our land.
could help us create a beautiful wildflower meadow offering shelter and food for butterflies and other pollinators.
could fund the purchase of 70 acres (28 ha) of land for native broadleaf planting – buffering and protecting nearby ancient woodland.
We don’t inherit the land from our ancestors. We borrow it from our grandchildren. We’d like to help leave the world better than we found it.
