The world needs more trees. Trees stop erosion, produce oxygen, offset carbon emissions, remove toxins from the soil and water and provide food and habitats for many people and animals. Children around the world will suffer most from the impacts of climate change but they also hold the future of the planet in their hands. Having a Love Tree of their own to grow with them is great way to inspire them and show them that they have the power to make the world a better place.
What can I do to help?

Does Love Trees offer options for Green Weddings?
No we don’t sell wedding seedlings. Another idea is Wedding Tree Certificates: Order as many trees planted as you want in honor of your wedding or guests, add a special message to your tree planting certificate and either:
• mail a printed copy (printed on 100% tree-free recycled paper – available at Staples) to each of your guests with their thank you note or as a thank you note;
• frame a certificate and put it in the middle of each table at the reception or just have one at the gift table;
• roll a certificate up and tie it with a ribbon matching the wedding colors then place one at each place setting.
