A Personalized Tree Gift is a sentimental, green gift that is perfect for any occasion. Whether you're looking for something for a family member, a friend, an acquaintance or a business associate, having a tree planted in the recipient's honor means paying tribute to the occasion in a way that makes a difference. Not only will you be marking the special occasion in a unique way, but you'll also be helping a struggling area in a U.S. National Forest recover from the effects of fire. Your gift will be one that will help make the world a better place, making it a wonderful tribute to the recipient of your gift.

When you purchase the Personalized Tree Gift, the tree will be planted in the honor of the person that you specify. Once the planting is complete, the person will receive online access to information that will provide the exact location of the planting as well as a photo of the tree. This makes the gift something tangible for the recipient and really makes the impact of the present apparent. The recipient's name and the month that you purchased the gift are also added to our Tree Gift Registry to commemorate the special occasion. We update the registry monthly, and it is always accessible for viewing.

Along with the gift of the planting, the recipient of your gift will get special keepsakes that can be treasured for years to come. We'll include a card with your customized message and a full explanation of what the Personalized Tree Gift is and what it means. In addition, the gift comes with a personalized planting certificate. This beautiful certificate will bear the recipient's name exactly as you provide it along with your name and the year. We can even frame the certificate prior to shipping for a small additional charge. Extra certificates can also be sent to the recipient if your gift is for a group rather than for a single person.

When you purchase the Personalized Tree Gift, you can choose the shipping method that's right for you, and we will mail it for free via first class mail. We can send the certificate and card to you to present to the recipient yourself in person, or we can mail the tree gift directly to the person to simplify gift giving. Orders are typically processed within 1 to 3 business days. Priority shipping is available to provide 2 to 3-day shipping for orders that need to arrive quickly.

Even if the recipient of your Personalized Tree Gift receives many presents for this special occasion, you can be certain that your personalized gift of a tree donation will stand out and be fondly remembered. Give the gift that shows you care about that special someone and about the planet that we all share. Order the Personalized Tree Gift from Trees for a Change today.
