The MPS Society was granted a license to plant a wood of Oak Saplings in Sherwood Forest, saplings that were cloned from the forest’s Great Oak.
The Remembrance Wood has since become a lasting memorial to children and adults who have lost their lives to an MPS or related lysosomal storage disease and continues to grow and flourish as each year passes.
We hold planting days where bereaved families are given the opportunity to plant a tree in memory of the child or children that they have lost. We also organise Family Remembrance Days where bereaved families can visit the Remembrance Wood with the support of the charity.

Development of the Wood
Memory boards feature the names of each individual that have been commemorated by a tree along with a short message of remembrance from their family.
Alongside these memory boards is an interpretation board which informs members of the general public of the Wood’s concept and purpose. Members of the public are also encouraged to take time to enjoy all of the delights that the Wood has to offer.
