I was delighted to read that Mother’s Day can be a time to reflect and do something positive even though my mother is not with me. Thank you for considering those who have lost their mother and making a difficult day a little easier.

Can I host a Trees for Mum site?

Of course! Please read our Trees for Mum Project Kit for all the information you need to set up your own Trees for Mum event.  Please remember it doesn't have to be a huge event - a planting with even 10 - 20 people still works very well!

Private plantings
If there are no planned Trees for Mum events in your neighbourhood, you can simply plant a native tree or flowers in your own garden. Visit your local garden centre to find your mum’s favourite native species or another variety suitable to your local conditions. Local councils may also be willing to provide trees and plants; please contact your local council to enquire.

You can visit our Facebook page for further details.
