This product is specially set up to enable contributors from Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, and their supporters and friends all over the world, to contribute to the Global Tree Initiative.
Your sponsored trees will be an offering for the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
NOTE: If you would like to dedicate your trees as a gift, for a special occasion, or perhaps in memory of a loved one, we can arrange this for you. Rowena from Jamyang Buddhist Centre, Leeds will email your gift certificate to you. Please add the wording you would like us to include in the ‘Notes’ section at check out. Remember to include the name, the occasion, the date and any message. A gift to your friend or relative and a gift for Nature!
Trees will be planted on land owned by Make it Wild, at Skipbridge between Harrogate and York, in North Yorkshire, UK. They will be part of a self contained woodland, to be planted in stages.
Planting of the first woodland of this project, at Dacre is now complete. As we planted the first trees there, in Autumn 2020, we were blessed with a rainbow!
We look forward to welcoming many of you to join us to help with planting the trees. However, please feel free to dedicate trees even if you won’t be able to plant them in person. We will be happy to plant them for you!
The trees will be a mix of native deciduous trees, selected to be suitable for the land and the weather they will experience. This is the best way to encourage biodiversity, and successful woodland creation. We at Make it Wild are very experienced in planting trees. We have created a lovely young woodland of 20,000 trees, which we planted at Sylvan Nature Reserve in 2011. More recently we planted 8,000 at Bank Woods and 8,000 at Dowgill Grange.
What each payment of £19.50 pays for:
- one tree, one stake and one tree guard
- the option to join us on planting days
- planting of the tree by Make it Wild, if you are unable to attend on the planting day
- ongoing protection and maintenance of the tree as required
- design of the layout of the woodland depending on the total number of trees purchased
- access to the woodland by prior arrangement, to visit or contribute to the maintenance of the trees
- a downloadable certificate confirming your sponsorship – the link will be emailed to you
- a gift certificate emailed from Jamyang Leeds if you are dedicating trees as a gift
Please note: If you would like to be involved in planting the trees, please email Rowena on email@example.com She will let you know the date and arrangements.
To buy more than one tree:
If you would like to contribute more than one tree to this wonderful project, please simply increase the number of trees as you make the purchase. The email confirming your purchase will state how many trees you have sponsored.
We would like to be able to pass on your contact details to Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, so that they can say ‘Thank you’ for your tree dedication, and let you know when the trees are planted. If you would prefer us not to pass on your details, please state this in the ‘Notes’ section at checkout. Thank you.
