Frequently asked questions

We work with the leading and most trusted tree planting organizations in both the United States and Canada. In the USA, we work with the Arbor Day Foundation. In Canada we work with Forest Recovery Canada and Trees Canada.

These organizations are forestry experts that also utilize local arborists and they take great care to plant the appropriate species of trees in the locations requested and using methods that help ensure survival and compatibility within the local eco-system.

The types of trees planted vary from season to season, and from location to location, based on the recommendations of the organizational planters in each of our project locations. These tree experts are best informed as to which species is suitable for each location and planting project.

We provide you with the ability to select the location (i.e., the specific National Forest) but then rely on our organizational partners to select the exact locations within the selected National Forest. In order to ensure that your trees flourish and grow, our organizational partners strategically select the specific species, location and timing of the plant.

If on the direction of the tree planting experts, your tree is not planted in the location that you ordered, you can be assured that the tree will be planted in another location where it is deemed to be needed the most (such as a forest recovery location). This rarely occurs. You can also be assured that any ordered Certificate will indicate the actual location of the tree planting.

With the tens of thousands of trees planted, the trees can only be planted on public land for the enjoyment of everyone (including our animal friends). The trees are planted in the specific areas of the public lands where they are needed most, as determined by the planters.

Your trees will always be planted on public lands and we have rolling availability of these locations, primarily based on need, in each of the 50 US States and all 10 Canadian Provinces.

A Certificate will be circulated to both the Purchaser and the Recipient detailing the purchase including the number of trees planted, the location, the year planted, the name of the Purchaser and of the Recipient.

It will not. For environmental reasons and in order to preserve the natural beauty of the forest, no plaques or signs are put on the trees. One of our core mandates is to respect nature and the forest, its inhabitants, and the impact of our work.

Our trees are usually planted in the spring, but sometimes they are planted in the fall. In order to ensure that your trees flourish and grow, our organizational partners, utilizing local scientists, strategically select the specific species, location and timing of the plant.

Never. Your trees are planted as a unique gift or tribute. There is never any intention of human interference with your trees.

Your trees enhance the beauty of the public lands where they are planted.  In many cases, these lands are accessible to the public and we encourage you to visit these places and enjoy your gift and the beauty of nature. 

Yes. Trees may be planted in more than one location. For example you may plant one tree in Alabama and one tree in Texas and one tree in British Columbia, however, these will be considered three separate orders and you will be charged accordingly.

An e-mail along with a PDF color Certificate will be sent to the Purchaser and Recipient - if e-mail is provided (with an e-mail copied to the Purchaser) 24 business hours after the Purchase.

Purchasers can also order a physical copy of the Certificate. When ordered, we aim to ship Certificates within 48 business hours of the purchase (US Postal Service/Canada Post). Please note that our organizational mandate is to maintain the environment so we are committed to paper reduction.
