Muck In Day - tree guard removal

When we plant trees we use plastic tree guards to protect them from grazers such as deer. This gives the saplings a head start in life and now we have an amazing native woodland growing under Curbar Edge!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

However, the tree guards are now redundant and must be collected to help tidy up this beautiful woodland and keep it in the best condition for both the wildlife and people who love it. You can help us by cutting the guards off the now mature trees and bagging them up to be removed from the woodland. These old guards will then recycled to help us reduce our waste!

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
