About the Trees

Where will my tree be planted?


TreeGivers trees are planted on public lands - such as state parks, national forests, and wildlife refuges - as part of reforestation and conservation programs. Our relationships with foresters in each state and Canadian province allows TreeGivers to present you with the opportunity to choose which state or province you designate for your gift planting.




What kind of trees will be planted?


TreeGivers foresters make the determination of which species of tree is appropriate for both the season and region which will be receiving your gift planting. We typically are not aware of which species will be selected for your gift planting, however the tree will be best suited for its new home in the surrounding forests.




Can I specify the region that will receive my planting?


We entrust the logistics of the plantings to the local foresters who make the final determination about each seasonal planting, based on the unique needs of their state or province and its natural conservation strategy. When you choose the state or province to receive your gift planting, the areas most in need of reforestation will be grateful for your gift!




What size will the tree planting be?


TreeGivers trees are typically seedlings between 2 and 3 years old that are grown by foresters as part of the state conservation & reforestation programs. Depending on the species of trees to be planted, these seedlings range from 9" to 24" in height and will be best suited to rapidly take to their new natural surroundings.




When will my tree be planted?


TreeGivers foresters plant twice a year, in both the spring and the fall. The soil conditions and precipitation levels at these times make it ideal for introducing new trees to the forest. Spring plantings typically occur in May & June while the fall plantings are in September & October, depending on the state or province you have chosen.




Can I go visit the tree planting?


Since TreeGivers trees are planted on public lands as part of the state or province's reforestation programs, the seedlings are frequently planted in areas which are inaccessible to the general public. Where possible, we may be able to share the name of the park or national forest which received the tree, however we are not able to provide further detail.




Does my tree have any identification on it?


TreeGivers seedlings are planted without any personal inscription and will be a welcomed addition to the surrounding forests as part of the state or province's reforestation programs. The tree will bring natural beauty to the landscape, providing a revitalized habitat for wildlife and contributing to our environment in a meaningful way.

Can I have more than one tree planted for my gift?
