Last-Minute Gift Ideas 2019!
Looking for some last-minute gifts and don’t want to give gift cards again this year? Consider one of these eco-friendly options:
Plant a Tree (Where They’re Really Needed)
Don’t worry, you don’t have to do any of the heavy lifting! There are several organizations that plant trees in North Texas and across the world. Your donations directly contribute to reforestation where it is needed most. Many of these sites offer e-cards and downloadable certificates that make a wonderful reminder for your loved ones that trees were planted in their honor.
Some of the organizations that Texas Tree Surgeons has partnered with in the past are:
Arbor Day Foundation
A world leader in tree planting and preservation, the Arbor Day Foundation offers paper and e-cards for the holidays, as well as saplings that can be shipped and planted in one’s own yard.
One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted offers a simple “One Dollar, One Tree” program that helps reforestation in South America, Asia, and also locally in the US.
National Forest Foundation
The National Forest Foundation is dedicated to preserving our United States National Forests and every dollar donated means one more native tree planted.
Born in North Texas, ReTREET has led tree planting efforts in areas of our country devastated by natural disaster, including the Gulf Coast, Missouri, Louisiana, and right here in North Texas.
Help Preserve Our Natural Resources
The Nature Conservancy
The Nature Conservancy is a global non-profit committed to protecting and restoring all of nature’s beauty through a diversity of programs all over the world.
National Parks Foundation
Like the NFF does for our National Forests, the National Parks Foundation cares for our US National Parks and provides help to both native plants and animals.
Make Someone’s Trash into Treasure
Turn Compost is a Dallas-based home composting service. Members get a receptacle for compostable waste that is collected regularly. Twice a year, members can receive fresh compost for their home gardens or donate their contribution to local community farms.
At Texas Tree Surgeons, we love trees and we love our customers! We are thankful to be able to serve our beautiful North Texas urban forest and are proud to partner with organizations like those listed above. As of December 2019, we have planted over 1400 trees through our partnerships, and we look forward to increasing that number in the years to come. We hope that the holiday season, and all year, is full of peace and joy for you and your loved ones.
