Where will my tree be planted?
You can choose any one of 12 areas of the UK in which to have your tree planted. You need to make this choice when you register. The majority of trees are planted in low-profile areas to supplement hedgerows, woodlands, nature reserves and schools.
Can I visit my tree?
You can choose which area of the UK your tree is planted in but it is not possible to visit your tree. Specific locations within your chosen area can change at the last minute due to the conservation needs of the area. In addition, young saplings are fragile and minimal impact on the area offers the tree its best chance of survival. Trampling feet can easily damage young trees!
When will my tree be planted?
Most of the trees are planted during the planting season which runs from November to March. The saplings must be dormant when they are planted to ensure they have the best chance. Occasionally, a few trees are planted in spring or summer, for example at an event or to mark a special occasion.
Where can I view my dedication?
Once registered, you will be able to view your tree dedication and more on the Tree Appeal website. Go to www.treeappeal.co.uk and click on the Gift Republic logo. Follow the menu options and enter the unique tree code on your certificate. You will see confirmation of the species of your tree and its exact location.
Prior to planting, your tree will also be tagged with its tree code and your dedication. Your tree will remain tagged for years to come – unless dislodged by the weather or the tree’s own growth!
If you do not want your tree details published online, be sure to check the appropriate box when you register.
How long does it take to receive my Tree Dedication certificate?
This will be dispatched within 28 days from the date of registration.
