Gift A Story We Plant

Gift your story and we'll plant trees to sequester carbon and offset your emissions.

Gift Stories are inspired by Instagram stories but they are private, last a lifetime and they plant trees for our planet.

How it works

🌳 You Tell Your Story

Team ForestNation will create a personalized gift story for you.

🌳 Deliver Your Gift

You can choose how you want to send them: manually, super quickly with our quick send feature, or use CSV or API to automate the process.

🌳 We get to work behind the scenes...

⚙️ We create the Recipient’s Forest Profile and add Tree Points which keep track of all the amazing trees we'll be planting for them. That’s real, live trees that will help fight climate change and off set your emissions.

⚙️ We also want to give you some serious kudos for being such an awesome gift-giver. So, we add something called Giving Tree Points to your Forest Profile as recognition for planting trees in someone else's Forest.

⚙️ To connect your recipient's Forest Profile with your own, we create a Forest Message, which is public and links your profiles together.

⚙️ We send an email to your recipient to let them know they've got a special eGift waiting for them. We include the Forest Message and a link to their eGift so they can check it out ASAP.

💡 The above scenario can be adjusted to fit your campaign. You can choose to plant in your own forest if you prefer! 


The recipient clicks the link in the awesome notification email or messaging app to checkout their amazing gift story you sent them.

From the gift story the recipient can click on your call to action or visit their Forest Profile so they can see updates about their trees!

Your Impact

We plant your trees in the Usambara Mountains of Tanzania. Once entirely bush and savannah, the landscape is now semidesert after heavy deforestation. Planting trees here will not only absorb CO2, but provide food, work and income to people affected. * More locations available on request.

Don't just take our word for it

Growing our own trees at work reminds us everyday to think about our impact on the environment and how we can take steps to improve it. ForestNation helps to raise awareness about social responsibility and the positive effect it has on us as individuals.

Jeroen Buijs

At TD Bank, we are committed to making our world a healthier and greener for the next generation. While working with ForestNation, we were able to provide our customers with trees to plant at home, while supporting vital tree plantings around the world.

Joseph Doolan
US Head of Environmental Affairs at TD Bank USA

The MasterCard program with the tree kits was perfect. The message about social responsibility and eco consciousness was a strong tie into the credit union giving back to Earth. The promotion experienced a 15% sales lift in registrations, which exceeded their expectations.

David Poger
President for Promotional Consultants Inc

ForestNation has been amazing to work with! We love checking in to see how many trees our recipients have planted and the overall environmental impact of doing so - it's also fun to see the pictures and names they give their trees! Swadesh is an incredible partner who is always thinking of new ways to work with Snappy and openminded when we come to him with ours 🙂 We love ForestNation!
