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.
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 the 2017-18 planting season (October 2017-April 2018).
Planting dates and locations will be available in September 2017, and there will be a variety of dates and Portland Metro-area locations from which to choose. All Gift Tree purchasers will be contacted with the schedule once it is available.
You'll be able to RSVP for yourself and up to 3 guests at the planting that is most convenient for you. 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 and will be emailed to you when your purchase is completed (images coming soon). 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.
