Please ensure you read and agree ALL the terms & conditions of Tree Adoption before completing your payment. By proceeding to payment you agree and have read and understood the below.
All Tree Adoptions are strictly limited to a period of 10 years from the date of adoption.
Towards the end of the 10 year period, we will contact you using your last known contact details. You will be given the opportunity to extend your Adoption for another 10 years. If you would like to maintain Adoption at the end of the 10 year term, please keep the Tree Guardians team updated with any change to your address, phone number or email address.
The trees and their Tree Guardian Icons (Icon - bespoke tree mounted hand crafted artwork) remains the property of Fylde Borough Council and Lowther Trust during the whole duration of Adoption.
We install the Tree Guardian Icons twice a year, in March and October. This is the optimal time for the tree. Within a week of adoption you will receive, via e-mail, a certificate of adoption and a picture of your tree.
Adoption is valid when you have paid the full fee indicated for the selected tree.
We reserve the right to close the Adoption scheme until the following season if it becomes oversubscribed.
Legal ownership of any tree remains with the council.
If unforeseen circumstances require it, the council reserves the right to move or remove any tree, and we would grant a replacement tree in an appropriate location.
These terms & conditions are subject to changes without notification. Breach of these terms can result in cancelling the Guardianship without a right to a refund.
No flowers, decorations or attachments to be left on or around any tree.
This will result in all items being removed, along with the icon and all monies paid for adoption being forfeit.
