Give a Gift That Tells a Story: Plant Real Trees with Gift A Forest eGifts
Picture this: You know those fun Instagram Stories that disappear after 24 hours? Well, what if we told you we've created something even cooler - private Gift Stories that last forever and have a positive impact on the planet.
How it works
Create a personalized eGift for your lucky recipient, and choose how you want to send it: manually, super quickly with our Quick send feature, or even 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 make the world a better place.
⚙️ 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 Profile.
⚙️ 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 RECIPIENT...
The Recipient clicks the link in the notification email to checkout their amazing story gift you sent them.
The Recipient can then click a link to visit their Forest Profile so they can see updates about their trees and claim it if they want to.
Gift a Forest for all occasions
Personalize any template and choose how many trees to plant. You’ll create instant smiles and a positive impact!
Planting trees for just about any team or customer event is guaranteed to boost the impact you’ll create. An impact that the entire world gets to feel the benefit from.
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.

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.

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.

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!
