Plant a Tree for Someone & Restore a Community - A Living Tribute


Plant a tree in someone's honor and restore a community or state forest in need. Our community restoration plant-a-tree gift allows you to have a tree planted for someone outside of the National Forest system, in states such as New York, Florida, Ohio, New Jersey, Texas, Pennsylvania and more.

Your trees will be planted through local and state tree recovery programs to restore communities, state forests and nature preserves that have been impacted by natural disasters such as wildfires, hurricanes, floods and tornadoes. 

Each honorary tree planting includes an elegant, personalized, FSC Certified commemorative card. Choose from a wood grain commemorative card, or a sympathy greeting card if the tree planting is in memory of someone.
