Members sponsorship possibilities

BWT aims to create natural woodland, not a memorial park.

We ask sponsors not to decorate trees, except small tokens which are removed after a few days. 

Over 14 years, Bearsted Woodland Trust have arranged sponsorship of over 450 trees and 64 benches!  No more benches are needed now, and tree planting has greatly diminished. 

Therefore, it was announced at the 2020 Annual Meeting that only Life Members who joined before September 2020 may sponsor trees. 

If you are in that category and wish to sponsor please contact us.

Plaques.  When our trees were seedlings, plaques had to be attached to stumps in the ground. 

Now, after more than fifteen years, many of the the stumps have rotted, so we are gradually removing them and supplying new plaques which can be hung on the actual trees, whose girth is now sufficient to make this possible without damaging the tree. This also protects plaques being damaged by strimmers cutting grass. We are continually trying to improve the lasting quality of the plaques we provide.


BWT keep a full inventory plan of all sponsored trees and benches.
