TreePeople Gifts Heal and Revitalize


A tree is always the right size, never goes out of style, doesn’t need wrapping, spares shoppers a trip to the mall and reduces climate change. A single mature tree can absorb the amount of carbon produced by a car driven 26,000 miles.

What better way to celebrate the season than with a gift that will heal and revitalize L.A.’s parks and mountain forests? For each tax-deductible donation of $25 to TreePeople, a tree can be planted in dedication to friends, family, co-workers, clients, and anyone on holiday gift lists. A beautifully designed and personalized holiday card accompanies each tree dedication.

For each tax-deductible donation of $100, a grove of five trees is dedicated and accompanied by an inscribed certificate. Certificates may be framed with an attractive recycled wood frame for an additional $30. Financial support from TreePeople’s Holiday Tree Dedications supports tree planting programs in the local mountain forests and park woodlands that have experienced devastation from fires, neglect or other natural causes. More than 14,000 trees were planted by TreePeople volunteers in Los Angeles and environs last year.
