It Is Important To Chose The Right Place 


The Tree Council has  local tree volunteers and local councils should be able to point anyone in the right direction.  Many forests have schemes allowing people to dedicate a tree to a loved one and this is a nice touch to remember someone who has passed on. 


Remember you can plant trees in your own garden so  long as roots and branches would not damage nearby properties, so ensure you leave adequate space for example do not plant a sapling right by the garden fence as its roots will grow under the fence and into the adjoining neighbours garden.


Trees can only be planted around your local area with the landowners' permission. You should not plant trees on archaeological sites, places with rare or protected species, grassland that has never been ploughed, wetlands and heathland, the Woodland Trust said. Do not plant on Council owned land or public highways without first contacting your local Council beforehand.


Our advice would be if in doubt, first find out who the landowner who is and ask them for permission or select another place for planting.
