Tree Appeal: Help National Trust gardens grow

The National Trust is undertaking the most comprehensive tree management project in our history and we need your help! Starting at the Rippon Lea Estate, we are aiming to plant hundreds of advanced specimens over the next five years to succeed our major trees, many of which are now well into maturity.

Can you imagine your favourite park or garden devoid of trees? It might still be a nice place to visit but it would not have a fraction of the impact it does thanks to its mature trees. In addition to trees providing us with shade, shelter, screening and cooling, there is also something wondrous about standing next to the largest living things on earth.

The fantastic legacy left to us by those who planted out our parks and gardens poses challenges. These trees will continue to age and decline so we need to plan for their succession. Where will the next trees come from that will provide such enjoyment for another 200 years? That´s where you can help us.

We welcome donations toward the purchase and establishment of the next generation of significant trees. These trees will have a lasting legacy for many, many years and will ensure the Trust´s historic gardens continue to entice and inspire visitors for centuries to come.
