Looking for an eco-friendly gift that's good for the environment and symbolises just how much you care? Here's a selection of trees that are full of meaning.
Trees store CO2 far into the future. They are vital to the green transition, fighting climate change and supporting biodiversity in local, natural habitats.
Many tree species live much longer than us humans. Your sustainable gift is the perfect, eco-friendly alternative that can help the planet today and decades from now.
As trees grow, they increase in value. When their life cycle is over, they are sold as sustainable timber. That makes your gift a long-term, green investment.

It’s quite difficult to wrap a tree! Instead, you can give your Valentine their tree with one of our gift cards. You can even choose how you share it with them.
Whether it's a Valentine's Day gift for women or a Valentine's Day gift for men, a tree is an idea that takes you off the beaten track. Of all the Valentine's Day gift ideas you can find on the internet, in shops or from friends, none will be as original, bucolic and lasting as a tree. What gift can compete with a tree for duration and beauty? A tree can also be the perfect gift for many other occasions, whether that’s a wedding, Christmas, Father's Day or Mother’s Day, and even for a birth or to honor the memory of a loved one.
The trees you buy as an eco-friendly Valentine’s Day gift grow in our forests in France and Denmark. We first plant them in local nurseries where they are cared for by our foresters who bring them to maturity to produce valuable lumber. We apply the principles of sustainable forest management in all our forests, which means we avoid clear cuts and prefer continuous cover silviculture. That helps us promote and protect vital biodiversity.
When you receive a tree as a gift for Valentine's Day, it is given to you with a dematerialised identity card, which you can find in your online account. You will find information on the age and species of your tree, but also on the cutting horizon (the date on which we estimate that it will be ripe for cutting), the amount of CO2 it will sequester during its life and the forest in which it grows. You can find the GPS coordinates of the forest on Google or on the forest page of our website. You can go there from April to October. Your tree does not bear your name or the name of the person to whom you have given it, because we favour its natural environment. But if you or the person you gave it to is the owner of the tree(s), it is not possible to know exactly which trees it is. At harvest time, the person to whom you gave the tree will receive a share of all the trees cut and sold in the same lot.
To ensure the renewal of forests, foresters plant trees. They look after them from planting to maturity, and when trees are cut down in a forest, others are planted in their place, unless they grow back by themselves. Foresters often favour natural regeneration, i.e. trees that have grown without human help. However, planting may be necessary in several cases: either because natural regeneration does not exist or because climatic conditions are not good. Sometimes trees are also planted to gently change the diversity of forest species in order to adapt them to climatic changes.
You’ve given a bunch of flowers before, but we think a bunch of trees is much more romantic and meaningful. While flowers quickly wither and die, trees grow for many years in EcoTree forests. They are symbolic, meaningful and you can even take the person you love to the forest where your eco-friendly Valentine’s Day gift grows in person. Your trees will flourish in time, just like your love for each other.
Hey – who doesn't love trees? These natural, living organisms are beautiful and forests are often referred to as the Earth’s lungs. Without them, life would not be possible, as they provide our oxygen and make our soils rich with the nutrients needed for cultivation. And of course, trees form incredible shapes and colours that constantly change throughout the year, which means our forests are home to a large number of fauna. While climate change is already affecting our way of life, more and more people understand the essential role trees play in a more sustainable future for the planet. When you give a tree as a gift, you can’t go wrong. Everyone wants to enjoy a meaningful, green Valentine’s Day gift that has a genuinely positive impact on climate change.
