Woodland and Heritage trees

Supporters can choose between sponsoring a woodland area or an individual tree at Kew Gardens or at Wakehurst.

Woodland areas at Kew include the Woodland Glade, while at Wakehurst you can choose to sponsor Bethlehem Wood, home of the National Birch Collection. Dedicate a woodland area for £1,000 and help preserve these magnificent areas for generations to come.

Dedicating an individual tree at Kew or Wakehurst is a unique way to celebrate the life of someone special. Your dedicated tree will be recorded on the Arboretum database, which holds the curatorial information and unique accession number of every tree grown in the gardens. Individual trees start at £5,000.

For further information, call Jill Taylor on 020 8332 3248 during office hours or email commemorative@kew.org.
