Your grove of trees will be planted by Trees for Life to create a beautiful, wild forest. Bare hillsides will be transformed into healthy young woodlands, rich in wildlife and protected for future generations.
You’ll receive an online grove webpage where friends and family can add trees and dedications of their own.
Groves cost £30 to create and this includes your first tree.

About your trees
Which types of trees do you plant?
The Caledonian Forest is a rich tapestry which includes over 30 different types of trees. Your tree, will be a sapling grown from locally collected seed and will be one of a number of species we plant such as alder, aspen, birch, bird cherry, hazel, holly, rowan, Scots pine or willow.
Can I choose my tree?
To maximize the impact of your donation we will determine the most appropriate species of tree to plant, depending on the soil, location and time of year.
Can I come and plant my tree(s)?
It is not possible for individuals to plant their own trees, but you are more than welcome to join one of our Conservation Weeks which often include tree planting amongst other conservation activities.
Will my trees be labelled?
Your trees are being planted as part of our work to restore the Caledonian Forest. To create as natural a forest as possible, we do not label individual trees and we do not allow plaques. Trees are planted sporadically in order to mimic the natural distribution of trees.
Your tree(s) will be planted at Dundreggan, near Loch Ness in beautiful Glenmoriston. Dundreggan includes ancient Caledonian pinewoods and superb birch and juniper woodlands. With mires, wetlands and wildflower meadows, Dundreggan is a haven for wildlife. Under normal circumstances you are very welcome to come and visit the area in which your trees have been planted. However, there is currently no public access to the estate due to the construction of the Rewilding Centre. We would be delighted to welcome you to Dundreggan when the centre opens in early 2023.
Where will my trees be planted?
Currently, trees are being planted at Dundreggan in our Carn na Caorach exclosure. Once Carn na Caorach is fully planted we will begin planting in new areas of the estate. We are also in discussions with partners about planting on alternative sites. (Image will open full size if clicked)
