Personal monthly membership
Plant two trees per month for £10
Nature is a beautiful thing, and you can make a real difference in protecting the world we live in. For just £10 per month, you can plant two trees per month and join us in our fight against climate change.
Start, pause or cancel your membership whenever you want. As someone awesome once sang, ‘We’re easy like a Sunday morning’. There are no contracts, just loads of flexibility and plenty of trees to be planted.
As part of the Tomorrow’s Forests community, and a monthly subscriber, we will send you:
An exclusive Creating Tomorrow’s Forests certificate and partner logo, both of which you can proudly display on your social channels, blog and website; we’ll send you the GPS coordinates for each tree you plant so that you can go and give your tree a big hug; and you’ll receive exclusive topical blog posts from our in-house Ecologist, as well as regular monthly newsletters on how your trees are growing and any wildlife sightings.
If you would like to plant more than 50 trees each month or are looking for a more bespoke package, then please contact us here.
HOW WE CREATE YOUR FORESTS
1. We design the site
After surveying the site in detail, we plan which trees will suit the soil type and landscape and design a planting plan. This includes tree species and features such as ponds and wildflower areas.
2: Our planters plant the trees
We use the Miyawaki Method to plant saplings at high densities so that they grow faster and restore biodiversity more quickly.
3. Receive your GPS coordinates
We’ll send you GPS coordinates so you can visit your tree.
4. Receive a certificate from Tomorrow’s Forests
As well as receiving a special certificate from Tomorrow’s Forests honouring your contribution, you will also receive exclusive topical blog posts from our in-house Ecologist.
5. Watch along as the tree grows
You will receive regular updates on how your tree or forest is growing and you will receive wildlife sightings in monthly newsletters.

Somerset, UKWe are delighted to welcome you to our first site, Charlotte’s Wood. It was previously an unused field on a farm in the Somerset Levels and will now become a diverse, native, thriving woodland. It will provide a new habitat for UK wildlife with numerous benefits for people too. We chose this site because it gives us the opportunity to show what Creating Tomorrow’s Forests is all about – using our expertise to create a beautiful wet woodland and water meadow, perfect for amphibians and rare insect species, which will also help control flooding in the area.
Site Type:Wet Woodland – wet woodland occurs on seasonally flooded or boggy areas and is characterised mainly by willow, alder and birch tree species and thick ground layer vegetation of mosses and ferns. It is an uncommon habitat that supports a high diversity of rare insects, otters, declining bird species such as willow tits, and flora including marsh marigold, yellow flag iris and wild redcurrant.
Soil Type:Sandy clay loam
Site Type:This site has been part of a farm for generations but is not used for agriculture as it floods frequently. Prior to this it was a willow plantation.
In order to jump start the wet woodland creation process, we are using the Miyawaki Method at
Charlotte's Wood. This means that we are planting the trees at higher densities as they will grow ten times
faster, absorb more carbon and establish a woodland ecosystem more quickly.
The site will be planted in two blocks, with black poplar and alder forming the majority of the top canopy,
while goat willow and bird cherry will form the lower canopy. The shrub layer will include hazel, grey willow
and wayfarer tree. The tree species have been chosen to include wet habitat specialists and provide a
plentiful supply of nectar for insects and berries for birds. There will also be a pond in the middle with an
amphibian hibernacula. Marginal aquatic plants are planted around the site, including yellow flag iris,
water mint and ragged robin.
Tree Species Planted:
Black poplar, alder, crack willow, white willow, downy birch, silver birch, oak,
bird cherry, goat willow, holly, grey willow, hazel, wayfarer tree, elder,
