u3a - u3a creates woodland for 40th anniversary

u3a Growing the Future

To mark the u3a movement’s 40th Anniversary in 2022, the Trust are creating a u3a anniversary woodland situated in the Brecon Beacons.

u3a member's contribution to the u3a woodland will help benefit the environment, wildlife and climate for future generations. The movement's target is for 5,000 trees to be planted between October 2021 and March 2022. 

This project is launched in members' magazine, Third Age Matters. u3a members can buy individual trees or a copse of 100 trees and u3as are also encouraged to plant trees within their own communities.  

The money for the trees goes towards establishing the trees and part of the cost for each tree is reserved as future payments for maintenance. Once they are fully established, they will be looked after as part of routine woodland management. We are fortunate to have secured the Woodland in an area of outstanding natural beauty and the trees will be expertly looked after by skilled arborists. 

Read more about this project in the September issue of Third Age Matters, out this week.

Buy u3a woodland trees on the u3a brand centre.
