A Forest to benefit the environment, wildlife, and people

Alne Wood Park Ltd. is wholly owned by the Heart of England Forest. A charity helping to reverse centuries of woodland decline by creating and conserving a huge broadleaf forest for the benefit of the environment, wildlife, and people. A place of enduring natural beauty, protected and secured for generations to come.

All profits from Alne Wood Park Ltd. are Gift-Aid donated to the Heart of England Forest to support the incredible work of the charity. 

The Forest and Alne Wood Park

Alne Wood Park is firmly aligned with the goals of the Forest, not only in promoting environmentally friendly burial practice, but also by managing the site to promote a biodiverse environment for plants and wildlife.

In addition, the business provides a connection to the local community and provides a long-term income source to support the charity to buy land, grow the Forest, and further expand its community involvement. 

The one who plants trees, knowing that he will never sit in their shade, has at least started to understand the meaning of life.

Green Legacy & Memorial Giving

Research has shown that active end-of-life planning and leaving an altruistic legacy can contribute positively to successful ageing. Purchasing a plot at Alne Wood Park is a unique way to confirm for you and your relatives where you would like to be buried. In addition this creates a tangible legacy for the site itself, as well as contributing to supporting the charity in building a greener future. There are also opportunities for friends and family to give directly to the Forest in memory of a loved one, such as planting a tree in their name, creating an online tribute page, or holding a memorial collection on the day. Please see the links below for more information on leaving a green legacy, memorial giving options and the charity's impact.
