Sponsoring a celebration tree is a lasting way to celebrate the life of a loved one, or to celebrate a special occasion, and give back to nature. Giving a gift that keeps on growing will help to create woodland habitats that will benefit people and wildlife for years to come, whatever the reason or personal meaning it has for you, sponsoring a celebration tree is a great way to help plant more trees in Solihull.

Hope Coppice Celebration Wood

At Hope Coppice we have dedicated a special space amongst nature where you can celebrate a loved one by creating a living, lasting tribute to them by planting a tree. Hope Coppice is a natural haven for wildlife, with newly planted woodlands and meadows, offering a tranquil place to stop and appreciate the moment, somewhere you can enjoy the surroundings and be embraced by nature. Hope Coppice provides a gateway into the rural areas of the borough with a good network of paths connecting Shirley to the villages of Dickens Heath and Cheswick Green.

You can also sponsor a celebration tree in a selection of parks located across the borough.  Simply choose one of our wonderful parks from the map below.


Your sponsorship of £495 exc. VAT will cover the cost of purchasing and caring for the tree during the first three years.  When first planted the tree will be approximately 2 metres tall, we will use stakes to secure the tree, and various accessories will be used to protect the tree helping it to grow and flourish.   

You can choose which tree you feel will best represent your special occasion;

Prunus avium Plena - Wild Cherry

Prunus subhirtella Autumnalis - Winter Flowering Cherry

Liquidambar styraciflua Worplesdon - Sweetgum

Acer platanoides Crimson King - Purple Norway Maple

Alnus incana Aurea - Golden Alder

Quercus ilex - Holly Oak
