Our Memory Tree

Memory Tree

The Memory Tree has pride of place in our Meeting Room.

Designed and built here at our offices in Devon, by the Barn Owl Trust team, this nine foot wooden tree provides a constant reminder of all the those that remembered Barn Owls.

Each wooden leaf bears the name of someone who either chose to support our work by leaving a legacy to the Trust or, of someone whose family and friends have made donations in their memory.

Until 2011 our Memory Tree was just an idea. We had recorded the names of all those that had remembered the Trust with a legacy, or for whom we had received donations in memoriam but we had nowhere to put a Memory Tree. It was a legacy that made it possible to build our wonderful Norman Alderson Meeting Room and allow us to provide a home for our Memory Tree.

If you would like to find out more please contact us.

Every wood leaf is unique, hand-made and engraved at the Trust. Each leaf bears the name of someone who will be remembered for making a lasting difference to wild Barn Owl conservation.
