What is a Gift Tree?

  • A Gift Tree is a sapling tree that will be planted in the forest location of your choosing by one of our trusted non-profit planting partners. Unlike other gift tree businesses, we plant trees around the world, not just in the United States.
  • A gift tree is a meaningful way to honor people and pets. The physical tree is not delivered. Instead, you choose one of our unique card tributes or animated eCards to send, that you personalize with your message announcing the planting and notifying the recipient of your gift.
  • A Gift Tree is a way to create a lasting, living legacy while at the same time helping combat the effects of forest fires and climate change. The ultimate “green” gift, giving the world a gift, too.

Step 2: Select the Gift Tree Planting Location

We work with trusted planting partners in over 30 countries on six continents.

Choose a planting location that speaks to you or is meaningful to the recipient.
Or plant in our “Trees for a Cause” charity donation program grove and a portion of the purchase price will be donated directly to the charity to help fund it’s programs.

Your gift tree is planted by our tree experts at the ideal time to ensure long-term survivability. Tree species are carefully selected based on what’s best for each location. While there is no plaque or marker onsite, we keep an official register in our office and your recipient can opt-in for a virtual visit, which provides them with a description of the project and a link to view the area where the gift tree was planted via Bing Earth.

The Gifted Tree Story

We started planting trees in Ireland in 2013 and we now plant gift trees around the globe. The tens of thousands of gift trees planted are helping to restore National Forests destroyed by fire or disease, and reforesting tree-depleted areas ravaged by the effects of climate change. In addition to planting trees, in developing countries, communities are taught best sustainability practices to help ensure long-term survivability of the planted trees. While these gift tree plantings combat the devastating effects of forest fires and climate change, helping you, our customer, connect with someone important to you is at the heart of what we do. Our unique and innovative tribute cards provide a “Wow” experience in an unexpected, personal way. Now you can be remembered, make a lasting impact and give the world a gift too.
