Dedicate a Tree packs
The contents of the Dedicate a Tree pack may differ slightly from the images shown. We reserve the right to substitute a replacement card/certificate in event that the one selected is no longer available.
The Woodland Trust is unable to allocate a particular species for a specific dedication. Our woods contain a wide variety of native broadleaf trees and with your certificate you will receive an Information Sheet for your selected wood which will include a map of the wood showing the approximate area where the trees are dedicated as well as detailing some of the species planted. In order to keep our woods as natural as possible, the dedicated trees, will not be marked or labelled in any way.

Help and FAQs
- When will I receive my email certificate? Email certificates are sent as soon as you have submitted your online application, though due to circumstances beyond our control they may occasionally take several minutes or possibly longer before they are delivered to the recipient’s inbox. If you or another intended recipient do not receive the certificate, then please contact us on email@example.com providing full details of your donation. A copy of your donation confirmation is always helpful.
- What size will my e-mail certificate be if I print it? The size of your email certificate depends on your printer settings. For best results we suggest printing as an A5 certificate.
- How much is delivery? A. All tree dedications are sent with free postage and packing.
- Will you print my name on the certificate? We only print on the certificate the wording you enter for the dedication. The card that comes with the certificate is blank and you can personalise this as you wish. Always ensure that you have completed the certificate wording in your application, as we are unable to forward blank certificates. If you do not complete the wording (only possible if applying by post as the online order cannot be processed without it), we will send a certificate in your name.
- Can I have two trees? You can request any number you wish, whether online through this shop, or by phone by calling 0800 915 1914, Monday to Friday between 8.30 and 17.00. If phoning, please have your words of dedication ready.
- I have dedicated three trees. Can I have three separate certificates? No, all trees in each donation transaction must be linked to one dedication, certificate and wood. You will need to place three separate transactions for single tree dedications.
- Are the woods all open to the public? Yes, Woodland Trust woods are open free of charge for the public to enjoy.
- I have dedicated trees before and would like the same wood and cannot see it on your list? Please give our Supporter Care Team a call on our Freephone number 0800 915 1914, Monday to Friday between 8.30 and 17.00. We like to be flexible and if there are still trees available in the same wood we will do our best to accommodate you.
- Can I have the address of the wood to put in my satellite navigation system? Woodland Trust woods do not have postal addresses as there is no building on the site. It is therefore not possible for us to provide this for you. We suggest using the nearest road name.
- Will there be signs directing me to the wood? No we do not put any signage on the roads giving directions. You will need to use the Ordnance Survey map to help you locate the wood. Grid references are given on the Information Sheet which accompanies your Dedicate a Tree gift.
- I have made a mistake on my dedication - what should I do? If you applied for your Dedicate a Tree online, lease reply to the automated thank you email you received and tell us what you would like correcting and we will do our best to make the changes before the certificate is produced. If you applied using the application form in our leaflet, please contact the customer service team on 0800 915 1914 Monday to Friday between 8.30 and 17.00. If the certificate has already been completed and the pack already emailed or posted, there may be an charge for a replacement certificate to cover administration costs and postage if applicable.
