print your own Plant a Tree in The National Forest

Looking for the ultimate in last minute, environmentally friendly gifts?

The National Forest’s Plant a Tree gift has been available to buy online for a while but, new for this Christmas, you can now design and print out your own certificate – perfect for that last minute gift!

There are three different designs to choose from and you can create a personal message to the recipient in the comfort of your own home. Hit ‘Print’ and there you have it, an attractive certificate to slip into a stocking or roll up and tie with a ribbon.

Give Plant a Tree in The National Forest and you are giving something that will outlast us all. According to a Chinese proverb: “The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago; the second best time is now.” You can do your bit now, and give the gift of planting a tree to your family and friends.

Because not only do you have a lovely certificate with your own message to give as a present, but you are also invited to a special tree planting event in The National Forest, when you and your family member or friend will be able to plant their tree, a tiny native species ‘whip’ such as oak, silver birch, lime or rowan, and help us create new woodland in this fantastic 200 square mile Forest.

Each tree costs £25 which reflects the true cost of creating and developing the new woodland, including future care and maintenance of the site. Buy your gift at

Now there is no deadline for a Christmas purchase!

And do remember, a tree lasts for a lifetime, not just for Christmas.
