This family grove supports the rewilding of Scotland in the names of Lee and Alessia. The grove is started with an initial eight trees, each with their own significance. Two trees represent Lee and Alessia themselves and their commitment to the environment and Scotland in particular, where they have made their home. Two trees represent their childhoods, spent in Ramsgate and Rome. One tree represents the first meeting of Alessia and Lee so many years ago now, and another symbolises their marriage in Dumfries in August 2012. One tree is for Eric, the bundle of joy who joined Alessia and Lee in February 2015. The eigth tree represents this Christmas gift in December 2016, hopefully to be joined by many more trees in the future.

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
