The Forest of Memories vision
The Forest of Memories is a project established with the vision of bringing people together to support the planting of a network of Memorial Forests around the UK. We will plant, at a minimum, a tree for every life lost during the pandemic. Anyone can dedicate a tree in a Forest of Memories to a loved they lost during the pandemic, there is no charge for this. It is our sincere hope that this will help the bereaved create a lasting gift of remembrance, in a special place to visit, for years to come.
We believe that in planting The Forest of Memories it will grow a fitting and lasting tribute to those who died during the pandemic. But the forests will also be designed in a way that will help us all remember those whose mental wellbeing was impacted in other ways during the pandemic, and celebrate those who helped us overcame adversity. Our vision is that the Forests of Memories will continue to benefit future generations when this pandemic is a distant memory. They will help to fight climate change and support UK biodiversity, and (through the forest's unique design) they will become an educational and cultural resource for local communities that also creates 'Green Jobs'. The forests will be a lasting legacy from this generation to the next as part of our national recovery from this Pandemic.
