Tree dedication FAQs

Can I choose what species of tree I am dedicating?

If you are looking to make a plant a tree experience when we are able to offer you a choice of what you plant. The other dedication options offer broadleaf tree species, but we are unable to offer the choice of any particular one when processing your donation.

Will you be able to post my dedication gift directly to the recipient?

Yes, if you provide their details as the delivery address when completing the donation form we will be happy to mail it directly.

How long does it take to receive the dedication pack after ordering?

Dedicate a tree packs are sent by 2nd class post using Royal Mail to UK addresses. We aim to dispatch dedicate a tree packs within 5 working days of receipt of donation. If your dedication is time-sensitive, you may want to check the dispatch date with our customer service team at the time of making your donation. 

Do you mail dedication packs outside of the UK?

We can do, and you may like to consider making an additional donation to cover the additional international postage cost to the charity. As an alternative we can arrange to send a digital version to the donor by email, but are unable to do this directly to a gift recipient.

I would like to gift a plant a tree experience but can I leave the recipients to choose the species, planting date and plaque message?

When ordering we do not ask for a species preference or planting date, this is arranged with the recipient and explained in the gift letter they receive.

We do prefer you to select the plaque message, recipients like the thoughtfulness of a personalised message and it allows us to have the plaque ordered and ready for when the recipient is ready to plant. 

I would like to arrange a plant a tree dedication but I’m not able to attend to plant it myself during the November to March planting season, can you arrange to plant it for me?

Of course, and we will send you a photo by email and then your certificate and location map by Royal Mail so you can hopefully visit it when you are able.

What happens if my dedicated tree dies or has to be removed because of disease or for safety reasons?
