Plant-A-Tree Program

USDA Forest Service Plant-A-Tree Program

Treecamp JannahThe Plant-A-Tree program is a way individuals, groups and businesses can have trees planted on the national forests to memorialize loved ones, commemorate births, weddings, anniversaries, or other special events while helping to improve the environment.

For a minimum donation of $10.00, donors receive acknowledgement of their gift and a certificate, suitable for framing, sent to the person or family specified by the donor. This certificate states the name of the person being honored and by whom the contributions is made.

The minimum donation provides for the purchase and planting of 10 to 15 seedlings suitable for the planting site. The trees will not be individually recognized, but will be part of the forest ecosystem managed to sustain our natural resources.
Contributions are deposited into a special fund to be used only to plant trees under this program. By making a donation directly to the Francis Marion & Sumter Forests, you can be assured the trees will be planted on this forest. Contributions qualify as charitable deductions under section 170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. Checks should be made payable to:
