Plant a Tree for Mother’s Day

Give mom the gift that keeps giving for generations to come – a tree. And don’t worry if there is no room in your backyard – donate a tree to your local botanical garden, community or American Forest.

I’m a mom that loves to garden, enjoys receiving plants and cut flowers. But more importantly I want to improve the world for my daughter and grandchildren. Adding trees to our environment can do just that.

Trees help capture rainwater, reducing soil erosion and storm water runoff. They also clean our air by capturing dust and pollutants, while releasing the oxygen we breathe. Plus, they provide food and shelter for wildlife.

If you are struggling for a local opportunity, consider Giving the Gift of Trees through the American Forests. They have planted more than 45 million trees in all 50 states and 44 countries since 1990. Just visit www.americanforests.org for details.

A bit more information: Or take a picture of a favorite tree. Maybe it is one you watch change with the seasons, or provides shade to your deck or shelter for family picnics. Or maybe it is just a pretty tree. Your mom will enjoy its beauty and your photography skills year round.
