Sponsor a Tree at Frugaldom

Newly planted trees at Frugaldom

The Frugaldom project combines native woodland regeneration with small scale food growing, foraging, eco arts, wildlife conservation, willow coppicing, national heritage and frugal self-sustainability.

We are now able to offer you the opportunity to sponsor a tree  (or several) in the new woodlands and orchards that are currently being planted at Frugaldom.  Our tree-planting programme includes several thousand individual trees, many of these being supplied by The Woodland Trust for planting as a living memorial to the men, women, children and animals affected by World War I

Alongside this, we have plans to introduce a heritage apple orchard, our chosen variety being the Galloway Pippin. This is a dual purpose apple favoured for cooking that traces it's origins to nearby Wigtown, which is also Scotland's national book town.

If you would like to sponsor or dedicate a tree to someone special, you can do so here.


Birch may be Silver or Downy
Harvest trees include Siberian Crab Apple, Rowan, Elder, Blackthorn (Sloe) and Hazelnut.
Willows may be Goat Willow or Osier (Salix Viminalis)
Apple trees are our Galloway Pippins being planted as part of the new heritage orchard.

We also have some young oak trees, a holly circle and our field maple grove that may be of interest to sponsors. Please contact NYK Media to discuss these or other opportunities.

We sincerely hope you enjoy being a part of our wonderful wilderness project and that you will visit in the future. As a 5-year project, planting should be completed by the end of 2019, with the official opening date for the project being 2020. In the meantime, official 'Friends of Frugaldom' are welcome to visit at anytime.
