Leave a Legacy of Trees + Community: Estate Planning with Friends of Trees

We need to do something bigger than ourselves. –Mohamed, Friends of Trees volunteer

Think about trees. Have you volunteered to plant them? Do you have special trees in your life, perhaps in your yard? You probably also admire and appreciate trees for all they do for us, our environment, our community. Especially now, with the impacts from climate change increasing in frequency and severity, we need trees more than ever. And when planted The Friends of Trees Way, with the power of community volunteers, we are stewarding climate activists – something we also need more than ever.

Supporting community tree planting is something special you can do that is bigger than yourself. As you consider your future and plan for your estate and your assets you may appreciate the information in this Friends of Trees booklet about estate planning; there is also more detailed information about ways to include tree + community in your estate planning on this page.

There is so much we can do that is bigger than ourselves, things that are positive and forward-thinking. Leaving a legacy that helps ensure the continuation of Friends of Trees’ programs that plant trees, grow community, and fight climate change will help our planet and its inhabitants for generations to come. As Mohammed also shared, “Planting trees really will outlive us. The effort that you put is so small, the benefit is just gigantic.”

Please contact Kathy Armstrong for more information about leaving a legacy of trees + community; and, thank you for considering including community tree planting in your estate plan.
