Offer New Parents the Gift of a Tree

Planting a tree is the perfect symbol of birth, as trees mean life and longevity. If you plant a tree in a child’s name, it can be a powerful message, as you’re wishing the child a long life marked by strength and even wisdom.

As the child grows, so will the tree, almost at the same pace. The child can see this tree when they’re an adult, and reflect on their entire life, knowing that even once they are gone, the tree will always keep their memory alive for generations to come.

The child may also want to care for the tree once they get older and, who knows, even develop a passion for environmental causes. Scientists mostly agree trees are essential to filtering the air from pollutants. They are the best line of defense against climate change, so gifting new parents a tree also adds support to the fight against climate change.
