We grow saplings into healthy trees by providing proper care: soil preparation, adequate water and nutrients, and protection from stressors. A slender stem and small crown mark a sapling, which can be deciduous or evergreen. Leaves, if present, are smaller than mature trees. As saplings mature, roots grow stronger, crown expands. Monitor for pests, diseases and stressors to ensure growth and survival.
A sapling is a small young tree. We will choose a type of tree for you and it will planted and named to whoever you dedicate it to. Your tree will be planted on our nature reserve in Devon.
After your purchase we will send you the precise location of your tree and a certificate for you via email.
Please note that we send everything via email to avoid adding to the carbon footprint of regular post and polluting the atmosphere.

I came to Devon to visit my sick mum. I had already bought a tree for her so I decided to navigate to it through using the What3Words app – OMG I was so delighted! I met the founder of Gift a Tree and he gave me a full tour. I found my tree, which turned out to be a Wild Cherry. I t was such a great experience. Andy and his wife even gave me a free Devon cream tea – thanks you! More people should know about this :) Tim Holly – Scarborough
