Tree Sponsorship


The tree sponsorship scheme has not been fit for purpose for some time. As a result no new tree sponsorships will now be granted. A new scheme will almost certainly replace it in 2018

The Arbory Trust operates a tree sponsorship scheme, whereby existing trees at the ground may be sponsored perhaps in memory of someone special, or simply as a significant gesture towards the work and long term aims of the Trust. We encourage people to consider the woodland as a whole, and we are always happy to choose a tree on your behalf.

The fee for sponsorship is £50 per tree, and a certificate is issued confirming the sponsorship. The money received is used for the maintenance of the grounds and can include appropriate pruning, thinning or replacing of trees as needed. It is a much valued and very positive way of contributing to the work of the Arbory Trust.

We no longer place stakes with numbers by individual trees as was the practice before. With an ever-increasing amount of numbered stakes, it become obvious that the natural appearance would soon be lost, and thus be deviating from the continuing aim to develop a natural environment wherever possible. Existing stakes will remain until they perish naturally, and will not be replaced (this is not a change in policy).

To sponsor a tree, simply send a cheque for £50 with a covering letter to our administrative offices in Ely, with your name and address, and any preferred type of tree. Alternatively ask for a form to be posted or emailed to you.
