Why leave a gift in your will to the Woodland Trust?

Without legacies, 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.

By remembering woods and trees in your will, you’ll leave a lasting gift that makes a real difference.

Your legacy gift will:

  • Protect the places you love. You’ll save woods and trees from destruction and help fight against tree pests and diseases.
  • Care for ancient woods which have been here long before us, making sure they’ll 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.

Remembering the Woodland Trust in your will is the most significant, lasting way you can have a positive impact on the UK’s woods and trees.

What could your gift mean?

Whatever its 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 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.
