Project Description

This Gift Tree Planting Project is in an area along the Willamette River Valley in Oregon.
Deforestation isn’t just happening in well-known global hotspots like Indonesia and Brazil’s rainforest. A new analysis says forests are also shrinking on land in Oregon, where an estimated 522,000 acres of forest cover have disappeared since 2000. That’s an area six times larger than the city of Portland, equal to more than half of Oregon’s designated state forests.

In addition to reforesting lands in Oregon, the planting of your gift tree helps protect endangered wildlife as well as help keep watersheds clean. Oregon’s old growth forests provide habitat for hundreds of species of fish and wildlife, including threatened species like the Northern Spotted Owl and the Oregon Spotted Frog. Additionally, trees filter excess sediment, nutrients and toxins before they enter waterways. They also provide shade for streams, making them healthy environments for fish, such as Oregon’s rainbow trout, steelhead and Chinook salmon.

Your gift tree will be of a tree indigenous to the area of the planting project including Oregon’s iconic trees like Douglas fir, Oregon white oak, Ponderosa pine, Western red cedar, Pacific willow, Oregon ash, Western hemlock, black cottonwood, and big leaf maple. Our projects plant over 35 native species so that the full ecosystem is supported, and degraded forests can be restored.

Once connected to the map, feel free to zoom in and out to get a feel of the general planting
area as well as its location in Oregon, the United States, and the world. The link is best viewed on a
personal computer as opposed to a cell phone. Please understand that this is the general area of the tree planting. Your
tree would be planted among thousands of other gift trees and there is no plaque designating the gift
tree and visiting the tree is unfortunately not possible.
Know that the tree planting project is making a monumental difference for the earth and
opening a new doorway to the world for future generations. If you have any questions, please
