Willow Burn Wood is a new wood created from a variety of native trees.  We have selected local seed and acorns to ensure the trees are matched with the locality.

Whatever your reason for sponsoring, you can choose from the following list of beautiful species:

  • Quercus Robur and Quercus Petraea, English and Sessile (also known as Durmast) Oaks* - Symbols of Wisdom, Strength and Endurance
  • Malus Sylvestris, Crab Apple – Symbol of Love
  • Prunus Padus, Bird Cherry – Symbol of the Heart and Compassion
  • Sorbus Aucuparia, Rowan or Mountain Ash – Symbol of Protection and Inspiration
  • Prunus Avium, Cherry – Symbol of Rebirth and New Awakenings

* Please note that oak trees are subject to a supplement (see Sponsor a Tree for prices).

 Whichever tree you choose and for whatever reason each one is special and will be treasured and cared for.  They have all been grown from seed or acorn gathered locally.  Each in its own pot has germinated and grown in a greenhouse, protected and sheltered from the elements.  By the time each tree becomes part of Willow Burn Wood it will be about 30cm tall.
