Birthday Tree Gift
Trees make for a great birthday gift!
What better way to celebrate the birth of a child or anniversary of years gone by, than planting a tree? Whether 0, 18, 21, 30, 50 or more years, there is something very symbolic and rewarding in planting a tree on behalf of a friend or family member.
What’s more, here at Mossy Earth, it’s more than just planting a tree, you will be offering your friend or relative the opportunity to reduce their footprint and see their trees grow in a thriving wild ecosystem. We also provide the GPS coordinates and beautiful location photos once the tree is planted.
To sum it up, your friend or relative will get:
- The GPS coordinates of their tree when it is planted
- Beautiful high-definition photos of their tree and surrounding forest in different seasons and weather
- A quarterly email update on the project where their tree is planted
- A quarterly newsletter keeping them up to speed on our on-going fight against climate change and our rewilding efforts
To avoid the hot, harsh Portuguese summers, we will be planting the trees in October 2017. 50% of the trees will go to the Faia Brava reserve, located in the Coa Valley in the northeast of Portugal. This is the most ambitious rewilding project in the country, perhaps even Europe. The 1000+ hectares of privately protected land is home to wild horses, wild taurus, beech martens, polecats, wild cats, foxes and birds such as the Iberian imperial eagle, black vulture, kites, golden eagle, eagle owl and the Bonelli’s eagle. The remaining 50% of trees will go to land managed by our partners Montis. Their work focuses specifically on native fire-resistant forests to help avoid the type of disaster that killed 64 people in Portugal this summer.
