Tree-mendous Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience Ticket Holders Donate to Woodland Scheme
There is always something charitable happening among us Potter fans. From Harry Potter days raising vital funds for the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, Scotland, to helping every child find a loving home with Lumos, we love to give something back. We also seem to have a love for the environment.
Recently, Potter fans purchasing tickets for Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience have, according to Secret London, helped plant over 12,000 trees, contributing to a woodland creation scheme. The scheme was created by Forest Carbon and aims to work toward a future where the next generations can continue to enjoy the beauty of nature.
Through this partnership, fans purchasing tickets to the experience have been able to add an optional donation of £3.95. Forest Carbon will use this donation to contribute toward buying a tree and planting and management costs. Aside from the knowledge that they are helping create a healthier planet, donors will also receive updates on the scheme’s progress and gain a broader understanding of the impact of their donation.
Forest Carbon pioneered the idea of carbon-financed woodland creation and has been planting trees on behalf of individuals and businesses for 15 years. Since it was founded in 2006, the organization has planted millions of trees, developed hundreds of woodlands in the United Kingdom, and removed tons of CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) from the atmosphere.

The Forbidden Forest Experience itself is a reminder of the beauty of nature all around us. The woodland surrounding the stately home at Arley Hall & Gardens in Cheshire, England, is the perfect location for fans to immerse themselves in the magic. When darkness falls, guests can wander through the illuminated woodland trail, discovering magical creatures and iconic Wizarding World moments along the way. You can even cast spells and conjure a Patronus with your wand.
The experience is running from October 16 to December 15. A few tickets are available for October and November, but December has good availability, although they are selling fast. An adult (age 16 and over) ticket costs £39, and a child (ages 5–15) ticket costs £29.
A large family pack ticket costs £116 for two adults (maximum) and two children. Any additional child tickets can be purchased for £29 each. There is also a group ticket (minimum of eight people) for £272, with any additional tickets costing £34 per person.
Well done to all those Potter fans who have already donated to this worthwhile cause. Have you booked your tickets for Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience yet? And if you have, did you donate a tree?
