A man does not a plant a tree for himself; he plants it as a landmark so his future self can locate buried treasure. Start planning scavenger hunts now with today's Groupon: for $75, you get 25 Give-A-Tree cards from the Arbor Day Foundation (up to a $148.75 value).
The Arbor Day Foundation, known as the world's oldest and largest proponent of timber towers, is on a mission to inspire millions every day to plant, nurture, and celebrate glorious greenery. The Give-A-Tree card campaign plants a tree in the honor of every card recipient, which keeps national forests flourishing and offers a tidy alternative for environmentally conscious dendrophobes. Each new tree breathes fresh air into imperiled forests, replenishes food and habitats for wildlife, protects water supplies, and offers a place for love-struck squirrels to carve a heart around their initials before regretting it weeks later. There are more than 90 different designs to choose from, and every Give-A-Tree card is 100% recyclable.
Arbor Day Foundation
In 1972, on the anniversary of the very first Arbor Day, an environmentally minded group of people created the Arbor Day Foundation to pursue the chlorophyll-laden mission of restoring habitats and natural ecosystems in the United States. The organization’s one million members help support conservation programs all over the country and spread awareness about the necessity of protecting our arboreal natural resources. The Tree City USA program replenishes urban forests in more than 3,400 towns and cities, helping produce cleaner air, lower energy costs, and storm-water control. Rain Forest Rescue preserves tropical rainforests and supports native rainforest families to maintain the habitats of more than half the planet’s plant, animal, and wandering conservationist species.
