Dedicate a Gift Tree

Dedicate a Gift Tree

Gift Trees are the perfect way to honor people and life’s milestones.

The support Friends of Trees receives through our Gift Trees program helps fund our work restoring natural areas.

Gift Tree program updates:

  • Due to COVID group size restrictions and event date changes due to pauses and shut-downs, we are not able to invite gift tree donors or recipients to plant their Gift Trees, though your gift tree donation still supports planting trees and restoring natural areas.
  • Due to remote working and related office systems we are not able to print and mail any gift tree certificates; if you mail a check requesting that service it could take a few weeks for a certificate to be generated.
  • Beginning in January 2021 the Gift Tree program will no longer be able to include inviting gift tree donors and recipients to plant gift trees and, unfortunately, in order to reduce traffic to and impact on the sensitive natural areas where gift trees are planted we are not able to share specific planting sites of gift trees.

All gift trees are native tree seedlings that are planted in the Portland, Oregon Metro Area at Friends of Trees Green Space restoration events that take place from October – April every year. Friends of Trees’ Green Space Program restores natural areas throughout our region, from Troutdale to Hillsboro, Oregon. All Gift Trees are planted in these areas and they play a vital role in our work restoring sensitive natural areas that are key for habitat, clean air, and watershed health.
