This Is One Gift They Won’t Forget.

This year, give a literally awesome present. Give the gift of a redwood tree.

The good people at Sempervirens Fund will plant a redwood in the Santa Cruz Mountains and send a card to the giftee. Your person will know that somewhere out there, a redwood tree planted in their name is growing tall and strong and beginning a life that may last thousands of years.

And you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your present won’t end up at a white elephant party (boo hoo!) or in the landfill (sad).

The Planted Tree  costs $50. That’s about half the cost of a night on the town, or maybe a cashmere sweater on sale at Macy’s (but not the good one). This year, go for meaning and magnificence. Learn more about the Planted Tree from Sempervirens Fund.
