Help plant a woodland to celebrate a loved one

Families are invited to celebrate a birth, marriage or life of a relative this year with the planting of a community woodland in the New Forest.

Anybody looking to celebrate a family member or life event can take part in the Family Trees scheme, run by the New Forest National Park Authority.

Registration is free and open to all, with the tree planting event taking place in Sway in the New Forest on 28 November. Anyone who registers will receive a free personalised certificate as a memento, even if they cannot attend the tree planting day.

To reserve your place for free visit www.newforestnpa.gov.uk/familytrees

Trees and woodlands are a key feature of the natural beauty of the New Forest and they also make an important contribution to the appearance of towns and villages within the area. As the Family Trees woodland grows and matures it will provide a legacy for future generations and provide a lasting memory of a loved-one.
