Ledger-Enquirer - - Stay connected -

Cel­e­brate this year’s hol­i­day sea­son with friends and loved ones while sup­port­ing con­ser­va­tion and tree plant­ing with the help of the Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion:

Re­turn­ing for the ninth sea­son in a row, Give-A-Tree cards from the Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion of­fer a unique hol­i­day giv­ing op­por­tu­nity with con­ser­va­tion ben­e­fits that will en­dure for gen­er­a­tions. And again, this year, Give-A-Tree cards can be pur­chased in­di­vid­u­ally and with cus­tom­ized text. Cards can be pur­chased for $5.95.

Pur­chas­ing the Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion’s cof­fee helps pre­serve rain forests in Cen­tral and South Amer­ica. The Foun­da­tion’s cof­fee, a part of the Rain For­est Res­cue pro­gram, is shade-grown un­der the canopy of Latin Amer­i­can rain forests. Un­like sun-grown cof­fee farms, this tra­di­tional shade-grown method gives the cof­fee a rich and de­li­cious fla­vor. Cost per bag is $16.44, in­clud­ing ship­ping.

The Foun­da­tion’s Trees in Cel­e­bra­tion pro­gram al­lows the giver to honor loved ones while sup­port­ing cru­cial con­ser­va­tion ef­forts. For each dol­lar do­nated, one tree is planted in a high-need for­est, and re­cip­i­ents are given a cer­tifi­cate show­ing them where the trees were planted.

Give the gift of mem­ber­ship with the Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion and re­cip­i­ents will be sent 10 free trees, which will be shipped at the right time of year for plant­ing. Mem­ber­ship lev­els vary and be­gin with a $10 con­tri­bu­tion.

“The hol­i­days are a time for think­ing about oth­ers, and as you do, take a mo­ment to think about what you can do to pro­tect the beauty and splen­dor of the earth,” said Matt Har­ris, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion. “We en­cour­age ev­ery­one to give gifts that will have a last­ing im­pact for gen­er­a­tions to come.” To pur­chase hol­i­day gifts that give back to the planet, visit ar­bor­day.org.
