Where will my tree be planted?

If you choose to sponsor a tree, your Acorn To Oak tree will be planted either on one of our UK-nominated Plant and Protect sites, on private land provided by one of our donors or on nationally protected land.

One of our nominated sites will be dedicated to planting a single tree in memory of each person lost to Covid19.

Your tree will be planted alongside other native trees and in time will transform open spaces into healthy woodland, helping to re wild UK countryside, making for diverse habitat that will become home to a multitude of wildlife.

Who will plant my tree?

Who will do the honor of planting your tree? 

1) Local young people on one of our community planting days.

2) Gone West's very own team of seasoned planters.

3) You or your loved ones.

If you choose to gift a tree, we will arrange to have the tree delivered direct to your door at the  or to a loved one to be planted at home at the start of the next planting season.

Clear instructions as to how to plant the tree will be provided as as a well as details of where you can access a video demonstrating the process.

When will my tree be planted?

Planting will  coincide with the next planting season ensuring your tree is given the best start in life, just like the youth you will be supporting with your donation.


Planting season starts after first frost and carries on until April or May depending on location.
