Dedicate a Tree for Christmas
Looking for an unusual birthday present, for the friend or relation who has everything? Why not dedicate a tree for Christmas at our Bank Woods Nature Reserve?
We have some beautiful vigorous young holly trees in our Ancient Woodland at Bank Woods. We will dedicate a young holly tree for you, as a gift that will grow and grow. This tree will look beautiful in its natural location and will last for many years to come! Ancient Woodland is an important and unique habitat, you can read more about its value here.
When you dedicate a tree for Christmas, you buy a gift with no transport, no postage, no waste, no plastic, no gift wrapping, no hassle! Read more about Tree Dedications here.
When we receive your order, we will contact you by email to finalise the wording for your Christmas Dedication Certificate, and to send you your map showing the location of the woods where you – or the recipient of the gift – can find the holly tree.
Holly’s striking red berries are a familiar and much loved symbol of Christmas. But did you know holly has pretty white flowers earlier in the year? The flowers are pollinated by bees and other insects. The caterpillar of the holly blue butterfly relies on holly leaves for its food.
Holly berries are loved by small mammals and birds, particularly the mistle thrush. They provide valuable winter food. Its dense cover is good for nest building, and its leaf litter is a good place for hedgehogs to hibernate.
This Tree Dedication includes:
A young holly tree at Bank Woods, near Summerbridge, in Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
A map showing the area of Ancient Woodland in which ‘your’ tree grows
A personalised gift certificate of dedication
The satisfaction of contributing to the creation of precious habitat for the many species which live on holly
The joy of knowing you have dedicated a beautiful tree which will live for decades
The pride of ‘doing your bit’ to minimise the impact of climate change by dedicating a tree which will absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere
(please note you won’t ‘own’ the tree)
