Arbor Day Gift Trees

The 200 Colorado Blue Spruce Gift Trees were a great hit. [In the 40 states they went to,] we have several reports of the trees doing very well. All 200 trees went so fast I actually ended [up] giving away my tree. So we came home with no tree! Thanks for your help.

- Mark & Rene Carlson

We were married at Oak Openings Metropark in Swanton, Ohio. We had a "natural" theme, so the trees fit perfectly. Everyone loved them! Not a single tree was left on a table when all guests were gone. In fact, some family members were asking for extras the next day.

- Norm & Allison Haley

The trees arrived right on schedule. The students were so excited! I did a super Arbor Day lesson which was perfect because it fell right on the heels of my Earth Day lesson. After the lesson I gave every student a tree and we did a little discussion. They absolutely loved it and were thrilled to receive a tree to go home and plant. It turned out to be a wonderful Arbor Day lesson for my students thanks to Arbor Day Foundation. Thank you very much.

I wanted the favors [for our 53rd anniversary] to be meaningful and decided that trees would be the ultimate give-away, one that would keep on giving as they prosper and grow. I can't thank you all enough for your dedication and professionalism. Our event is sold out and I'm looking forward to a successful luncheon. While addressing our guests I will take pride in singing the praises of planting a tree and also praise the fine work you are doing. I wish everyday could be "Arbor Day."

Child Care Resources in Monmouth County, NJ hosted its 6th early childhood conference... The theme of the day was "Leave No Child Indoors: Nature in the Lives of Young Children" Each guest received an Arbor Day tube with a Norway Spruce sapling to plant at their homes or at their child care centers with their children. It was a perfect gift and greatly appreciated. We expect that the child care centers of Monmouth County will be a lot greener! Thank you.

We received the trees, everything was in good order and they were well received by our guests. Thanks again for making this happen; it was a great addition to our wedding and the guests loved the idea.

- John Rider

The trees that we ordered for our wedding favors came out perfect and were a big hit! Unfortunately, there were none left over for myself and my husband! We will be ordering some more soon! Thanks!!!

- Katherine E. Leadford

I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how happy we were with our order of trees. Everyone at the bridal shower just loved the trees! It was such a different gift to offer our guests and it will be a gift that is around for years to come!

- Kristie Arnold

I wanted to write your foundation to tell you how much of a hit our gift trees were at our May 31, 2008 wedding! Everyone thought it was a very unique favor idea. Every single one of the trees went to a good home and were promptly planted! I was very happy to be able to receive all the trees in excellent condition and to be able to help our environment as well. Just wanted to say thank you for making our special day even more special!

- Sylvia & Mitch Slivo

We just received our trees and we are delighted! The packaging, the presentation and the simple beauty of the tree itself exceeded our expectations. I know our customers will appreciate the gift and we hope, will be moved to plant their tree and care for it.

- Gail Rice

Thanks again for your outstanding service in sending us the trees for our wedding. The trees were a huge hit!

- M. Bowen

I just wanted to say thank you for excellent customer service in making sure I was satisfied with my Gift Tree order for my wedding. Customer service was right on top of it and was still able to give all my guests a healthy seedling. Thanks for caring that my day was perfect, and I feel better knowing there are a few more trees growing in the world with the memory of my wedding day. I would recommend you for anyone looking to do something unique and positive for the Earth on a special occasion.

- Tammy L. Bodge-Terry

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know our Amtrak Blue Spruce seedling giveaway event went smoothly and was very well received by all. The seedlings arrived on time and in great condition, with the quality custom labels attached. We received many complements from travelers and staff alike and were happy to tell them we got the seedlings from the Arbor Day Foundation. Thanks to everyone at the foundation for all your help in making our event such a terrific success!

- Amtrak E-commerce

The trees were a BIG hit at the tradeshow. Customers were very impressed with our concern for the environment and the fact that our trees were a tradeshow item that they really wanted!

- Tracey Holley

The Arbor Day Foundation was so generous and pleasant to work with. We received 300 Red Bud tree seedlings for our event with Miller African Centered Elementary School. The children had an exciting, educational and rewarding experience. Over the summer, it has been wonderful watching our tree seedlings grow and form buds. Thank you for making this special day possible.

- Doubletree Hotel

Thanks, the trees are wonderful. Our scholars absolutely love them.

- Jr. NYLC

We gave 900 Ponderosa Pines away to our employees to promote resource conservation and it was more of a success than we could have ever hoped for. During the give-away we heard a variety of plans the employees had for their trees, everything from planting it in their yard with their grandkids to using it as part of a local restoration project they were a member of, to giving it to a local boy scout troop. It was refreshing to see the positive response and excitement over a simple tree.

- Lockheed Martin Aeronautics

We would recommend the Arbor Day Foundation's gift trees to anyone! For a company event, we ordered over 1,000 gift trees in different varieties to give to people living all across the country! The process went smoothly from the first phone call to the delivery of the trees, with very little effort from us. They took care of everything, their customer service was awesome, and everyone was pleased with the trees!

- Accor North America

I am totally pleased with the service your organization provided. This past holiday season, we sent saplings to 6,000+ members, many of whom welcomed their tree as a refreshing change from the typical gift. We believe the tree provided a subtle tie-in to our campaign to convert members to paperless electronic statements. While we can't say for certain, we believe the Gift Tree was a contributing factor to the overwhelming success of that campaign. Thanks for everything!

- Coastal Federal Credit Union

Handling out 3,000 tree seedlings was a great way to show our community that AT&T Pioneers care about our environment by encouraging the electronic billing and not the cutting of beautiful trees. Annually, more than 36,000 trees are saved through the use of AT&T's online services.

What a magical day our wedding day was! The heavens rained down bringing luck to our marriage and giving San Diego the most amazing fresh smell. Being nature lovers we really wanted to have an environmentally friendly wedding. Realizing how "un-green" it was to print and mail the many pieces of a wedding invitation we set out to find a way to neutralize this. Our solution? Arbor Day trees as wedding favors. They were a HIT! I love hearing the stories from family and friends about their trees!

- Mrs. Briana Schultz

Rose and Jim were married at sunset in Seattle, Washington, on the banks of the Puget Sound. Guests received trees from the Arbor Day Foundation, representing the beginning of a new life as husband and wife, and inspired by the lush surroundings of the Pacific Northwest.

- Rose Bellini

The trees were an excellent wedding favor, they arrived on time in excellent condition. We selected the gift trees because we felt that other gifts were too "disposable" and not really meant to last. We wanted to instill a feeling of something meant to last for our wedding, the trees fit desire and the outdoor Colorado mountain location perfectly.

- Kristen

Our son and daughter-in-law wanted to have as much of a "green" wedding as possible. They are both committed to a sustainable future, and the trees were a perfect gift for their like-minded guests. The packaging was unique and personal. We displayed them in a rattan basket with a purple ribbon for each guest to take as they left the reception. All of the guests loved them. Now the perfect day can live on with the trees.

- Joyce Ardo

If we had a theme, it was trees. We got married under a tree, tree guest book, tree on the invite, .. so it was only fitting that our guests would take home a tree to plant. The National Arbor Day Foundation was easy to work with and the trees were perfect. (I have tons of photos for you if you'd like, just email me and i'll send them along!) Thank You! -Lindsay

- Lindsay Bianco

We got married in May 2010 at a beautiful spot at Mill Falls on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. We tried to make our wedding as environmentally-conscious as possible: vegetarian meal, local/seasonal flowers, potted plants instead of cut flower arrangements, one location for wedding & reception, etc. We gave our friends & family Arbor Day tree saplings -- ordered them according to where in the US our guests live. Everyone loved them! And we kept one as a wonderful reminder of that day.
