After losing a loved one, many people find comfort in the knowledge that they have donated to a project that brings trees to the landscape, protects many of our precious species, and provides green space for others to enjoy.
By buying land, Avon Needs Trees makes sure this legacy will be there for future generations.
This Memorial Wall is to ensure that the names of those who have passed on are remembered.
Many thanks to all who have donated.

Kate lived a life of care – for people, for our environment and for the creatures that share it with us – she loved the idea of unleashing the restorative power of nature.

Fi Radford was an environmentalist, activist and generous supporter of Avon Needs Trees. She died, far too young, on the 22nd November 2020 after a short illness. Her energy, determination and extraordinary bravery will be missed by everyone involved in environmental activism, as will her unfailing warmth, kindness and good humour.
Thank you to Andrew, Fi’s husband, and her two sons for nominating Avon Needs Trees as recipient of donations in lieu of flowers. Long before she became ill, Fi donated money in memory of her aunt Enid and ANT is pleased to be able to announce that our copse of trees in Hazeland’s lower pasture will be named the ‘Radford Copse’. Fi has also left money for two benches at our viewing point, and we look forward to welcoming all those who wish to remember Fi on-site in spring.
“A wonderful lady who was a great friend.” – Louisa
“A wonderful and kind person, and a great advocate for climate action. She will be greatly missed.” – John and Jill
