Give your friends and family members something truly special for their next milestone event—plant a celebration tree in their honor.  A gift tree is a celebration gift that creates a lasting legacy and also aids in the reforestation of areas ravaged by forest fire or climate change. Our celebration gift trees are also popular for giving to outdoor enthusiasts, gardeners, travelers, and people who are passionate about the environment and sustainability. Have someone in your life who’s hard to shop for? The Gifted Tree is an ideal solution that’s sure to be appreciated by any person who seems to already have everything they need. 

How To Plant a Tree In Celebration Of Someone

It is easy to give a celebration gift tree in three steps:
1) choose the tribute design you would like to send,
2) select the number of trees and a planting location that is meaningful to the honoree or
allow us to choose the location that is most in need of trees at this time, and
3) add your personal message.
The Gifted Tree will take care of the rest – have the tree planted and
send your personalized tribute card which contains the tree planting certificate.

What is a Celebration Tree?

A celebration tree is a sapling tree (one to two feet in height) that will be planted in the forest location of your choosing by one of our trusted nonprofit planting partners. Unlike other companies, we plant trees in United States national forests AND in 40+ countries around the world. Note that a physical tree is not delivered. Instead, a tribute card, that includes your custom and personal tree planting certificate, is sent to the individual or family announcing your tree planting gift.

Our Beautiful Handcrafted Tribute Cards Announce The Planting

You select one of our beautiful, unique tribute cards or animated eCards, tell us how many trees to plant and where to plant them, and then add your personalized message. We’ll hand-create the tribute (with the tree planting certificate) and send it to the recipient, announcing that trees have been planted. We even have a long list of occasion-specific message suggestions to write on the certificate if you get writer’s cramp.

A Tree is Planted and a Special Keepsake Gift is Created

Our planting partners will select the best species of tree to plant, choose the optimal time to plant it, and manage its care. The honoree will receive your stunning, personalized tribute announcing the tree planting gift. Besides the tree planting certificate, the tribute packet includes info on how they can virtually visit the general area of the planting as well as a butterfly shaped seed tag with the inscription “Plant Me”. These handmade paper butterflies are embedded with wildflower seeds that will sprout and flower (instructions included) at their home.
