Now, in 2020, Fingringhoe is the first nature reserve to have a beautifully crafted tree of life installed.

It will be an opportunity for you to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, marriages, retirements, long service awards, a thank you, Christmas or you may choose to remember a colleague or loved one in memory at this special location. The leaves will come in three colours that will give it a wonderful autumnal feel.
The colour of the leaf also determines the period you wish to the leaf to be placed for: bronze - three years, silver - 5 years, and gold - 7 years. In addition, there will be 30 birds available to sit amongst the tree, which will be which will be on display for 8 years. Each leaf or bird can accommodate a personalise inscription, so over time the leaves and birds will fill the tree and showcase the wonderful messages.
