We no longer offer individual child membership. However, youngsters can still become Nature Detectives when they join as part of a family membership.

In fact, it's even more fun together!

I took my children to see the wood I played in every weekend as a child. They swung on the same rope swings and did all the things I used to do. Our family membership shows them how much fun woods can be, plus we're supporting the Woodland Trust who give everyone access to these amazing places.

Help us plant trees

We urgently need more trees to tackle the climate crisis. Your family’s membership could help us plant new native trees with schools and communities right here in the UK.

Protect woods and wildlife

Our members help us care for more than 1,000 woods, from tranquil urban oases to irreplaceable ancient woodlands. With your family’s support we can continue to protect these precious habitats and ensure wildlife thrives.

Inspire a new generation of nature-lovers

Improve health and wellbeing

Green spaces are vital for our physical and mental health and trees play an important role – whether it’s reducing air pollution or alleviating stress. With your family’s support we can create a greener, cleaner environment for our children to grow up in.

How we spend your money

We spend 82p of every £1 you give directly on trees, woods and wildlife. The other 18p helps us raise the next £1. But don’t just take our word for it.
