Tree Tour

Congratulations on your gift of a tree! What a wonderful gift for you AND the earth! Thousands of trees growing in tree nurseries in El Salvador, Guatemala, and the United States are eagerly awaiting the good news that they will grow in celebration of your birthday, anniversary, holiday, a new birth, wedding or other special occasion.

We welcome you and are proud to guide you through our tree nurseries, introduce you to tree planters, and tell you more about your tree that is being planted. We hope these pictures and maps will help you understand, appreciate and connect with your special tree.

Planting Sites and Tree Planters

Your True Nature collaborates with two organizations to plant your tree.

Trees, Water, & People

Each Shade, Flowering or Fruit tree is hand planted with care by members of surrounding communities in El Salvador and Guatemala or volunteers on work tours by Trees, Water & People (TWP). Located in Colorado, TWP is an audited 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization insuring the quality of the trees and planting. Their project was featured on the National Geographic Channel for its quality and highly innovative approach to reforestation and introduction of fuel efficient stoves in local communities. This project offers the best combination of ideal growing conditions, creation of jobs for local communities, capability of planting a wide variety of beautiful trees, price, aftercare and protection of the trees from future harvesting. Over one million trees have been planted and successfully cared for in this project.

Plant-It 2020

Each Evergreen tree is planted in the US by Plant-It 2020, a 501(c)(3) private foundation founded in 1992 by the well-known singer and environmentalist John Denver. They have worked with international, national, state and local government, corporate and private partners to plant, maintain and protect 13 million indigenous trees worldwide. Current US planting projects include California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.

The Right Tree for the Right Place

A special Shade, Flowering, Fruit or Evergreen tree group is chosen by the purchaser of your TreeGreetings and is listed both on your eCard and on your personalized tree certificate. From within each group below we will select your specific tree variety according to soil conditions, species diversity, moisture for a particular year, trees needed, and what is available in the tree nursery. When properly selected your tree will thrive and grow for many years. Each tree starts from a seed and grows to just under two feet before "graduating!" See FAQs page for lots more educational information.

Bountiful Fruit Trees
Abundant fruit filled with juice provides delectable food for families as well as birds and animals.

Evergreen Trees
Deep green and keeping their foliage all year, the fragrance of these trees brings memories of life and celebration.

Tropical Shade Trees
Growing thick and beautiful, these trees cool the earth and help preserve important water resources.

Beautiful Flowering Trees
These trees are renowned for their colorful flowers and add splendor to every landscape.

What Happens Next

Once your TreeGreetings is purchased it may be a few months or more before your tree is planted. It all depends on which month the purchase has been made, optimal planting conditions, where the trees are being planted and available projects. Once the tree has been planted, both the sender and the recipient will receive an email from TreeGreetings announcing that your tree has been planted.

Each hole is hand dug and grass is cleared away to give your tree "breathing room". Your tree is planted and the earth is patted down around the base of the tree. Trees are watered by rain and send their roots down for nourishing minerals and stability. Each tree will take a year or so of "settling in" before it starts to put on amazing growth.

Imagine your tree or trees growing in the warm sun, nurtured by rain and bringing shade, oxygen, fruit, color, and homes for birds or animals, to make this a better world for all of us. And to know that your special tree is growing next to someone else’s special tree and together a forest is being created. We treat each tree with care. Our special gift to you and the Earth.
