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

Without legacies, hundreds of threatened ancient woodlands would have been lost, and millions of trees wouldn't have been planted. 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 achieve?

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 fund an important butterfly and botanical survey, giving us the knowledge to protect rare and vulnerable species and ensure they have the habitat they need.
will restore a small woodland pond, helping support a multitude of wildlife species.
could help us create a beautiful wildflower meadow offering shelter and food for butterflies and pollinators.
will enable us to use horses for low impact thinning of conifers on difficult terrain, letting in light and encouraging natural regeneration.
could fund the building of a bridge in one of our woods – opening up access for people to come and explore.
brings 74 acres (30 ha) of damaged ancient woodland into management by the Woodland Trust.
could fund one mile (2km) of an all-weather access track, helping people of different abilities to enjoy our woods.
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.
