Dedicate a tree

Your Tree Dedications

In 1999 the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust opened its first ever ‘Supporter Woodland’, planted with the donations we received from the very first people to support our tree dedication scheme.  

With your help we have now created 17 new ‘Supporter Woodlands’ in the Yorkshire Dales in addition to the hundreds of other new broadleaf woodlands we have helped fund throughout the Dales and Nidderdale.

We keep a record of every individual tree dedication. You can search our tree dedication register to find your record by entering the surname of the person who made the tree dedication (you can narrow down the search by entering the first name and surname, separated by a space).

If your search shows ‘wood to be allocated’ this means your tree has not yet been planted. We only plant between October and March whilst the saplings are dormant to ensure that the trees have the best chance of survival, so please keep checking the site and we will update your record as soon as the tree has been planted. We will also write to you to let you know. 

Dedicate a tree in our next supporter woodland 


When we plant a new woodland our aim is to keep it as natural as possible, so we do not mark or identify individual trees in any way. This doesn’t mean you can’t choose your own tree in any of our supporter woodlands, we just ask that you respect this by not marking the trees.

If your tree was dedicated in either the Valley of Desolation (1998-2000) or St. Joseph's Wood (1997-1998) you will find that details of your dedication are not available on our online tree dedication register.  This is because your dedications pre-date our website system.  We are currently working to add all these details onto our online register, but this may take some time, so please bear with us!  In the meantime, please feel free to call us on 015242 51002 or email info@ydmt.org with any queries.
