Leave a legacy gift in your will

Legacy Gifts Explained​

We aspire to ensure that future generations inherit a planet where both people and the natural world flourish. Let us make this a permanent contribution to the planet through your legacy. Gift a Tree urgently needs more land to plant trees on. Any land gift, no matter how small, will contribute towards future generations being able to enjoy natural environments and the nature they will attract.

A legacy gift, also known as a bequest, in a will refers to a sum of money or property that is specified to be given to a designated recipient (such as a person, organisation, or charity) after the death of the testator (the person making the will). Legacy gifts are a common way for individuals to make charitable donations or provide for loved ones after their passing.

Due to mass deforestation the challenge is now on to acquire more land to plant trees on. We need more land to plant trees because forests play a critical role in mitigating the effects of climate change. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, helping to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and mitigate the effects of global warming.

Your Gift will Help to Combat Climate Change

Leaving gifts in your will help to combat climate change and is important for several reasons. Firstly, the effects of climate change are becoming increasingly apparent and it is essential that individuals take action to address this issue. By leaving a legacy gift that helps combat climate change, you can play a role in addressing this pressing global challenge.

Secondly, by supporting organisations and initiatives that work towards mitigating the effects of climate change, you can help ensure that future generations will have a liveable planet. Your gift can help fund research, advocacy, and action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote sustainable practices.

Thirdly, legacy gifts can have a lasting impact, allowing you to make a meaningful contribution to the fight against climate change beyond your lifetime. Your gift can inspire others to take action and support causes that are important to them.

In summary, leaving a gift in your will to help combat climate change is a way to make a positive impact on the world and secure a sustainable future for future generations.

Why we need more land to plant trees

More Land

We need more land to plant trees because forests play a critical role in mitigating the effects of climate change. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, helping to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and mitigate the effects of global warming.

Climate Change

Moreover, deforestation and land use changes are significant contributors to global carbon emissions, and planting more trees can help to reverse this trend. Trees also help to regulate local climates and can reduce the impacts of extreme weather events, such as floods and droughts.


Additionally, forests provide important ecosystem services, such as protecting water sources, preserving biodiversity, and supporting wildlife. By planting more trees, we can help restore damaged ecosystems and protect vulnerable species.

Take Action

In order to address the pressing issue of climate change and ensure the health of our planet, it is important that we take action to increase the amount of land available for tree planting. This can be done through reforestation efforts, conservation programs, and the protection of existing forests.

How your gift helps


Field without trees

The field above does nothing for nature. There are far too many like this in the UK and worldwide. We need to act now in order for animals to stand a chance of survival. A gift of land enables us to transform areas into natural environments.

In just a few years the former barren area can be teeming with wildlife. In addition to helping nature, woodland helps to clean the water we drink and the air we breathe, and improves our mental and physical wellbeing.


Great for nature
