Tree Planting Program
Love Trees manages a global children’s educational tree planting program funded by generous donations, corporate sponsors and the tree gifts you purchase to thank the wonderful people who helped you grow.
Give a child a tree and save the world
Love Trees works independently and partners with development organizations to provide trees and environmental education to school children in Africa, North America and Haiti so kids can have a Love Tree of their own to plant. It’s all part of the Love Trees goal to educate and empower kids and give them more opportunities to connect with nature.
These days many children have less time and fewer opportunities to connect with nature. This is a real loss because research shows that contact with nature makes kids feel better about themselves. Love Trees is about hope, gratitude, empathy and giving children an opportunity to contribute positively to their world. When they plant their tree, either with their family at home or as part of a school or camp environmental project, they are learning that they have the power to help make the world a better place.
In developing countries, a Love Tree is truly a “tree of life” as it can alleviate hunger, foster self-sufficiency, provide natural disaster tree relief, combat global warming and improve nearby soil, air and water. ”There’s something so hopeful about planting trees with kids,” said executive director Andrea Jones. “Kids are the future stewards of the environment. They’re concerned about the state of the planet and eager to help. I’ve seen the magic that happens when you give a child a tree – let’s give as many children as we can a Love Tree to plant.”
