Trees make perfect gifts

Celebrating life events and honoring your loved ones is easy with a Gift Tree from Friends of Trees.

 Your green gift will grow over time and leave a legacy for future generations.

Gift Tree March 2013 26


Our Gift Trees program is changing. In order to accommodate more planters, we are now offering gift tree purchasers the chance to plant at one of four plantings during Friends of Trees' regular planting season (October-April).

Planting dates and locations will be available in September, and there will be a variety of dates and Portland Metro-area locations from which to choose. All Gift Tree purchasers will be contacted via email with the schedule once it is available.

You will be able to RSVP for yourself and up to 3 guests for the planting that is most convenient for you; once you receive planting dates you can invite your guests directly. Plantings will happen alongside our Green Space program, at different restoration sites, and Friends of Trees volunteer planters will also be there. However, the Gift Tree planters will be in their own group, a bit separate from the larger planting. As always, if you cannot attend a Gift Tree planting, we will make sure your trees get planted.

All of our Gift Tree certificates are now electronic: You will be able to choose the certificate you prefer, print it, and give it or mail it directly to your Gift Tree recipient. Your emailed purchase receipt will contain a link to the page where the printable images are stored, along with printing instructions. For a $5 surcharge, we can print and mail you a certificate.

 A few things to keep in mind:

Because of the sensitive nature of the planting sites, we can't mark individual trees, but if you join us at a Gift Tree planting you will be able to plant your own Gift Trees.

Please note that all visitors to all planting sites must follow all posted rules and regulations, and this may include staying on marked trails. Some trails and sites are closed seasonally to protect sensitive bird nesting areas, amphbian habitat, delicate native plant growth, and watershed erosion processes. Your Gift Trees help restore and enhance sensitive natural areas, benefitting wildlife, water, fish and humans.

Gift Tree purchases are tax-deductible
