Nebraska City, Neb. (Nov. 2, 2009) – Give back to the Earth as you celebrate the holiday season with friends and loved ones with the help of the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation.

Give-A-Tree Cards are an ideal way to send holiday greetings to friends and loved ones and plant trees in America's national forests. Give-A-Tree Cards are a unique line of greeting cards that help replant national forests which have been devastated by wildfires, insects and disease. Give-A-Tree holiday cards come in 21 varieties, some of which are available in boxed sets of 5 or 10 cards.

Every Give-A-Tree Card plants a tree in honor of the recipient. This is a
gift that will be enjoyed not only by the recipient, but by future generations of Americans as well.

Trees in Celebration allow the giver to honor loved ones while at the same time making a positive impact on the environment. Trees in Celebration include a
certificate for the recipient, and for each dollar donated a tree is planted
in a damaged forest.

Arbor Day Specialty Coffee makes a thoughtful gift that helps preserve the Earth's precious rain forests. Arbor Day Specialty Coffee is shade-grown, organic and Fair Trade Certified. It gets its delicious, rich taste from the shade of the rain forest, and is part of the Foundation's Rain Forest Rescue program. Each cup of Arbor Day Specialty Coffee helps preserve a portion of
the rain forest.

Give special friends a membership to the Arbor Day Foundation, and they will also receive 10 free trees. A membership costs $10, and includes many great benefits, including 10 free trees that will be shipped at the right time of
year for planting.

"As you think about others during the holiday season, please take a moment to think about what you can do to preserve the splendor and beauty of the Earth this time of year," said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. "We encourage everyone to give gifts that will have a positive impact on the environment for generations to come."
