Give trees as a gift

Why give trees?

Trees are a fantastic gift idea because they are environmentally friendly, sustainably sourced and, unlike most presents, completely unique. We take care of the acquisition of the land, the planting of the trees and their growth according to sustainable forestry. This way, your mother will be the owner of one or more of the trees in our forests. And the day they are cut down for timber, the proceeds of the sale will go to your mother!

A tree can also be the perfect gift for many other occasions, whether that’s a wedding, a birth, Christmas, Father's Day or Valentine's Day, a birth or to honor the memory of a loved one.

Trees absorb CO2

Trees store CO2 far into the future. They are vital to the green transition, fighting climate change and supporting biodiversity in local, natural habitats.


Trees grow with you

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.


Trees produce valuable materials

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.

Still not sure about giving a tree for Mother’s Day?

Looking to buy a unique Mother’s Day gift that's eco-friendly, original and packed with meaning? Here are the answers to some common questions.

What makes a tree a unique Mother’s Day gift?

Well, have you ever given your mum a tree for Mother’s Day before? It’s the perfect gift if you want to show that you think a little differently and really care for the environment. Of course, you could do the same as everyone else and order your Mother’s Day gift online or your local store. But rest assured, they won’t be as eco-friendly and memorable as a tree. A tree can also be the perfect gift for many other occasions, whether that’s Valentine's Day, a birth, Christmas, Father's Day or Mother’s Day and even to honor the memory of a loved one.

Where do EcoTree trees grow?

All the trees you buy through EcoTree’s treeShop are grown in our forests in France and Denmark. They first get planted and are grown in local nurseries where our expert foresters care for them and help them mature until they can produce valuable lumber. We apply the principles of sustainable forest management in all our forests. What does that mean? We avoid clear cuts and prefer continuous cover silviculture, which helps promote, protect and conserve natural habitats and biodiversity.

How can I see the tree that was given to me?

Been given a tree as an eco-friendly gift for Mother’s Day? You’ll need to add it to a new online EcoTree account, or your current account if you already have one. You’ll be able to see your tree’s location, age and species, as well as the date we estimate the tree will be ready to cut. As your tree was a unique and sustainable Mother’s Day gift, you will want to check out the amount of CO2 your tree has sequestered throughout its lifetime. You can find the GPS coordinates of the forest on Google or on the page dedicated to forests on our website. You can even visit our forests from April to October and see our trees in person.

Why does EcoTree plant trees?

We love forests and our mission is to plant trees as part of a sustainable approach to renew and protect forests. We have a team of foresters who care for our trees throughout their lifetime. Not only do we plant trees in new spaces, when older trees mature they are cut and used for quality timber and other trees are planted in their place, unless they grow back on their own. Foresters often favour natural regeneration, which just means trees that have grown naturally and without the help of us humans. There may be several reasons to plant trees, including that natural regeneration does not happen or because the climatic conditions are bad. Sometimes, trees are planted to modify the diversity of forest species, so they can adapt to climatic disturbances.

How will a tree show how I feel for Mother’s Day?

Ever given your mum a bunch of flowers for Mother’s Day? We think trees are an even better gift idea, because they are full of meaning and eco-friendly. Those flowers will be gone in days, but buy your mum a tree and it will grow for many years in EcoTree forests. Trees are symbolic, full of meaning and, if you want to, you can even bring your mum to an EcoTree forest to see her unique Mother’s Day gift in person. As your relationship grows and develops over time, so will the gift of trees.

Will my mum really want a tree for Mother’s Day?

Come on – is there anyone who doesn't enjoy spending time in the trees? They are natural, living organisms that give life and soul to our natural environment. In fact, forests are often called the Earth’s lungs as life would not be possible without them. After all, they provide the oxygen we breathe and rich soils that contain the nutrients we need to grow our food. As the seasons change over the year, so does life in the forest as they are home to fauna, flora and plenty of wildlife. And though it’s true climate change is having an impact on how we live, people are beginning to understand the vital role trees play in building a sustainable future for our planet. These are all great things to share with your mum when you give her the gift of trees. We think she will absolutely love this meaningful, unique Mother’s Day gift that also has a hugely positive impact on the world.

Why give a unique Mother's Day gift?

If you’re tired of sending those traditional Mother’s Day gifts every year, perhaps your mum is ready for something new and unique too. More and more people are switching to alternative gift ideas that also happen to be great for the environment. And just because a tree is sustainable and free from single-use plastics, it doesn’t mean it can’t be meaningful for you and your mum. In fact, we know from talking to EcoTree customers that climate change and living an environmentally friendly lifestyle is increasingly important to people of all ages. So there is no reason why buying an eco-friendly gift for Mother’s Day won’t go down well! Everyone loves unique, sustainable gifts that are good for the planet… especially trees!
Think about it. Every year, typical Mother’s Day presents end up being taken back to the store, resold to someone else or even chucked straight into the bin. I mean, we love flowers like we love trees, but they don’t last long when cut and given as a gift! By contrast, an eco-friendly Mother’s Day gift is sustainable by nature – a tree lasts for many decades and will be a long-term benefit to the environment.
That’s why when you give your mum or another special woman in your life a tree for Mother’s Day, you can be sure it will still be there long into the future. That in itself is what makes a tree the perfect, unique Mother’s Day gift for you to send this year. You’ll be doing your bit for the environment while sharing a symbol of love, strength, and one of the most important, lasting relationships in your life.
So what tree species will you choose this Mother’s Day? From the Douglas fir to the Sessile Oak, every species is completely different, which means you can choose the one that best sums up the special relationship you have with your mum. When she becomes the owner of a tree in an EcoTree forest, together you will have helped us protect and nurture a more resilient, vibrant, thriving ecosystem.
Wait – let’s talk about climate change too. Trees are a huge part of the solution when it comes to building a better future for our planet, as forests are an important, natural carbon store. When it comes to the fight against climate change, that means trees are a brilliant way to capture CO2 from the Earth’s atmosphere.
Of course, there is the sustainability issue too. Because while a tree makes a unique Mother’s Day gift, it’s also a green and eco-friendly gift idea because it – obviously – completely free from single-use plastics. In fact, there is no waste created at all, because you can buy and share your alternative Mother’s Day gift online and email a well-designed voucher straight to your mum!
If you are new to EcoTree, you might not know that we are forestry experts and manage a number of forests across Europe. We don’t just plant and look after trees throughout their lifecycle, we also make sure they are used sustainably as natural resources. By harvesting trees that have reached the end of their useful life, we gain natural, renewable wood that can be turned into beautiful timber. That’s a far better option than polluting alternatives, including plastics.
Here at EcoTree, our commitment to the environment and principles is what we base our forestry model on. The green transition is coming and the timber from trees is a valuable, strong and a vital part of all our futures. The planet is about to become more sustainable and reliant on renewable materials, which means forests are so important as the world adapts to a changing climate.
Every year, a tree absorbs approximately 25 kg of CO2. On a personal level, for your mum, becoming a tree owner on Mother’s Day will have a significant impact in terms of offsetting her own carbon footprint. It’s the kind of message that means a lot to people and will no doubt form a part of everyone’s responsible thinking as the world adapts to and fights climate change.
Finally, by giving a tree as a unique Mother’s Day gift this year, you are spreading the word about forests, carbon capture, climate change, biodiversity and many other topics related to our planet. Of course, you never know, if you give a tree as a Mother’s Day gift, you might get an eco-friendly, alternative gift back from them when your birthday or some other celebration comes around.
When it comes down to it, trees are a unique Mother’s Day gift idea that benefits our planet in lots of ways. Trees in EcoTree forests have a meaningful impact and you can even give them as a gift all year round, whatever the occasion.
