Plant a tree to celebrate your loved ones' life.

We know that memories of our loved ones are precious and how important it is to keep their memory flying. That's why we are proud to be working with the National Forest to create a new Air Ambulance Memorial Woodland. We are offering you the opportunity to plant a tree in memory of your loved one and watch it grow to become part of a beautiful new woodland and create a lasting legacy - a place of celebration and commemoration that you and your family and friends can enjoy for years to come.

How it works

We currently offer two different tree planting packages. So no matter your location, age or ability you can plant a tree and contribute to our Air Ambulance woodland and keep the memory of your loved one flying.

  1. Tree planting experience
    Bring your family and get your hands dirty while you plant your tree in memory of your loved one. Join us on one of our tree planting days in March and November where expert foresters and charity volunteers will be on hand to assist. Keep it personal as you remember your loved one by choosing your sapling from a variety of species available on the day. Then plant your tree in celebration of your loved one while enjoying the beautiful surroundings of The National Forest. You’ll also receive a personalised certificate and regular updates on the woodlands. Suggested donation: £150
     
  2. Tree planting service
    If you can’t make our tree planting day, don’t worry, you can still honour your loved ones memory with our tree planting service. Simply purchase your tree and one of The National Forest’s expert foresters will happily plant this for you. You’ll receive a personalised certificate and regular updates on the woodlands. So you can be warm in the knowledge that your loved ones memory lives on for lifetimes to come. Suggested donation: £50

A lasting legacy

Dig in, plant a tree, plant a memory, leave a lasting legacy. 

We are proud to be working with the National Forest Company to create a new Air Ambulance woodland in the heart of the Forest near Ashby de la Zouch in Leicestershire. The National Forest is a 200 square mile area covering parts of Derbyshire and Leicestershire. They are a national exemplar of what can be achieved through planting trees, more than 8.5 million have been planted in the last 26 years.

Our new memorial woodland forms part of this fantastic project and together we are keeping memories flying. It will provide a perfect place to reflect on the wonderful memories of your loved ones. So you know, whether you plant your own tree or use our tree planting service, your loved one’s memory will live on.

Keep their memory flying

If you would like to keep your loved one’s memory flying in other ways, then we have a few other options for you!

You can create a tribute page by clicking on the 'create a tribute page' tab at the top of our page. You can also enjoy sharing their memory with your messages which will be kept as flying sycamore seeds. You will also be able to share your page with family and friends to create an on-going place for people to join together in memory of your loved one.

Or you can simply make a donation in memory of your loved ones and create a flying sycamore seed to share their memory.
