Gift a Tree

Give Me Trees Trust is bringing you an opportunity to plant and adopt trees on the special days of your life - birthdays, anniversaries or festivals. Celebrate by planting, adopting and gifting trees. We will take care of your trees, till they become independent & mature.

Our main philosophy is not just to plant trees, but to maintain them for at least 3 years so that they become self-sufficient. In a tree's journey of growth, just 10% of the time, efforts and money goes to plantation and 90% go to the maintenance work which involves the following:

Composting

Plants need several kgs of manure every few months.

Mulching

Mulching is a process done to ensure that saplings are not overexposed to direct sunlight. This helps in moisture retention and keeps the soil cool.

Watering

Each sapling planted needs watering for atleast twice a week for 3 years.

Protection

We do a 5-layer perimeter fencing at our afforestation sites to prevent grazing animals and unwanted human intervention from damaging the saplings planted.

Manpower Costs

We have a dedicated team of tree planting experts, who have gone through extensive trainings to ensure that planted saplings are well nourished and healthy, and become independent trees after 3 years.

Help us to increase the green cover
of the country.
