BACK TO OUR PLANET
What a wonderful gift for you AND the earth! Thousands of trees growing in tree nurseries in El Salvador, Guatemala, and the United States are eagerly awaiting the good news that they will be planted and grow to provide shade, fruit, oxygen and inspiration to animals, people, a community and the world.

We are proud to guide you through our tree nurseries, introduce you to tree planters, and tell you more about the trees that are being planted. We hope these pictures and maps will help you understand, appreciate and connect with this special opportunity to plant a tree.

Planting Site & Tree Planters
your true nature collaborates with two organizations to plant your tree.

Sustainable Harvest International

Each Indigenous tree is hand planted with care by farmers in different communities in Central America. Located in Maine, Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) is an audited 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization insuring the quality of the trees and planting. Their mission is to preserve the environment by partnering with families to improve well-being through sustainable farming. With the mass amount of deforestation occurring due to slash and burn agriculture practices, SHI educates farmers on better farming techniques creating a better future for the land and forests. As of today SHI has planted 4 million trees, restoring 16,000 acres of forest.

Plant-it 2020

Each Evergreen tree is planted in the US by Plant-It 2020, a 501(c)(3) private foundation founded in 1992 by the well-known singer and environmentalist John Denver. They have worked with international, national, state and local government, corporate and private partners to plant, maintain and protect 13 million indigenous trees worldwide. Current US planting projects include California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? It may be a few months or more before your tree is planted. It all depends on which month the purchase has been made, optimal planting conditions, where the trees are being planted and available projects. Each tree is hand planted with care by members of surrounding communities. Sometimes whole families work together. Grass is cleared away to give your tree “breathing room” and your tree is planted. The earth is patted down around the base of the tree and it is given a good drink of water to settle the soil around the roots. Trees are also watered by rain and send their roots down for nourishing minerals and stability. Each tree will take a year or so of “settling in” before it starts to put on amazing growth. Imagine your tree or trees growing in the warm sun, nurtured by rain and bringing shade, oxygen, fruit, color, and homes for birds or animals, to make this a better world for all of us. And to know that your special tree is growing next to someone else’s special tree and together a forest is being created. We treat each tree with care. Our special gift to you and the Earth.
