It was a tradition amongst Victorian and Edwardian house guests to gift a tree to their host.

As you wander around the estate here at Knockdow keep your eyes peeled for small pewter markers at the base of the older trees and shrubs. These detail who made the gift and when. If you are interested we can check the records that were kept and identify exactly what the specimen is and the date of the gift.

Dedicating a tree is a fantastic way to mark or celebrate significant occasions and events. Indeed for those who get married at Knockdow our gift to the happy couple is their very own commemorative tree planted on the estate.

We extend this opportunity to others. Whether it be a birthday or anniversary gift or a memorial to a dear friend, planting a tree is a fitting and living tribute. We have an extensive list of varieties which thrive here on the west coast to choose from.
