Often, we can't even find the words to express the feeling overflowing in our hearts.
Our beautiful certificate brings care and compassion for today and hope and healing for tomorrow.
All the trees are planted by non-profit third-party organizations, usually in public areas like national forests or specific reforestation places. Most of the projects are to replenish arid zones or newly built areas. All trees have a planting verification. The trees will be planted accordingly with the reforestation projects regulations based on season, location, and tree specie. Being this an eco-friendly gift in dedication to a loved one, the location would be better selected by the reforestation project where life will rise by planting the trees where most are needed. Based on that, though, the tree will be located in areas not easy to access but greatly appreciated for generations to come, where the earth will be greener because of the tree planted in dedication today.
Your Plant a Tree gift will support reforestation efforts in locations such as:
The tree planted will be a local tree based on the reforestation project's needs and tree species.
You can choose from all of our designs or send us your own. Please see our samples HERE.
A healthy tree stores about 13 to 20 pounds of carbon annually.
The trees do not have any identification on or around them. As expressed before, sometimes, based on the reforestation location, the site where the trees are planted is not very easy to access. Just the thought that a tree is growing in the name of a loved one, followed by a consideration of leaving a greener planet for future generations, is more than enough argument to dedicate a tree no matter where it is located.
The receiver gets an elegant Tree Certificate with the name of Honoree, the sender(s), and the receiver(s). The sender gets a notice with the memorial tree number.

By planting trees, you are preserving life. Not only by planting trees, you are keeping the memories of your loved one growing, but also you are helping to leave a healthier planet for generations to come.
