The impact

By helping us plant 1,000 trees, you will make a lasting impact for the environment, local communities, biodiversity, and the wellbeing of the planet! Trees help clean the water we drink, filter the air we breathe, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. A single mature tree can absorb up to 22 pounds of carbon per year. That's 22.000 pounds of carbon per year once the trees from this campaign mature! And as you know by know, harmful carbon in the atmosphere is a huge driving force of climate change. 

We cannot wait to celebrate ValenPINE's Day with you! And if you'd like to ditch the boring unsustainable gifts this year, plant a tree for Valentine's Day! The everlasting gift of a tree will surely make your loved ones PINE for your affection (we tried to hold back on the pun, we really did 😉🌲).

Gift Trees

Gifting a tree in someone's name is a heart-felt and everlasting way to show your appreciation. Make someone smile with delight knowing they are helping to create a healthier planet! Choose an image below, write your message, and gift a tree. Learn more

By gifting a tree, you will help to:

  • Reforest areas affected by environmental disasters
  • Restore native biodiversity to protect holistic ecosystems
  • Boost the liveliness of local communities
  • Trees play a very important role in our lives; they clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to more than 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Not to mention, forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
  • The trees you are helping to plant will create an incredible positive impact for nature, people, and wildlife. Since the need for reforestation is global and always changing, we will distribute your donation to a project where funding is most needed now.
  • Both you and the giftee will receive a personalized tree certificate (see gallery) with the recipient's name to thank you for your donation. The giftee will get a custom e-card created by you on your date of choice. We will also send you updates about this project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • In order to maximize the impact of your donation across our multiple projects, we will plant a variety of tree species native to the area that we are reforesting. For example, we plant Polylepsis trees in the Andes since they have adapted to the extremely high altitude. We sometimes plant fruit trees in Africa for agroforestry in order to generate long-term benefits for local communities. In India, Avicennia alba mangroves are planted along the coast as they are resistant to the impact of lower tidal currents.
