The One Million Trees Initiative -- a great way to let Mom know she's one in a million this Mother's Day
To plant a tree is to make a direct investment in your community and your future. Cultivating and maintaining a healthy urban forest is a cost-effective way to mitigate some of the environmental and aesthetic impacts of a growing metropolis. The results are healthier people in healthier neighborhoods.
At Shelby Farms Park we are planting one million trees, writing one million new stories. Your donation helps offset the cost of each tree and ensures the longevity of our forests by assisting with ongoing care and upkeep. Each contribution is a gift – a story told to future generations. One Million Trees donation levels start at $50.
Let Mom know she's one in a million by giving a tree in her honor this Mother's Day! We'll send her a special, limited-edition package, acknowledging your gift that includes:
- 1 locally made, natural bar of soap
- 1 "Love the Park" bumper sticker
- 1 "Grow the Park" bumper sticker
- 1 tree adoption certificate
- 1 letter from SFPC acknowledging the generous contribution made in her honor
To ensure that your gift arrives by Mother's Day, please place orders to be mailed by May 4, 2016. If you would like to deliver your gift in person, orders may be placed until noon on May 6, 2016.
If you would like to place an order over the phone, please call Austin Beckford at (901) 222-7245. To place an order online, click the button below.

TREE FOR ME
Most of us perform activities through the day that consume energy and contribute to air pollution. Donations to the One Million Trees program will purchase and plant trees, as well as nurture them over the years – helping to offset your carbon footprint. We do the work for you and you can breathe a little easier as a result.
HONOR THEM WITH A TREE
Birthdays, baby showers, weddings, holidays and just saying thanks are all great opportunities to plant trees in honor of friends, colleagues and family members. Not only will they receive a gift from us acknowledging your donation in their honor, they will also feel like they are connected to one of the greatest parks of the 21st century and part of a movement to transform Memphis into a world-class city. It is our desire that your gift will encourage others to participate in our One Million Trees program as well.
Trees are gifts that last many lifetimes. A white oak may grow more than one hundred feet tall and live several hundred years. Even after trees fall, they contribute to forest ecosystems by providing food, habitat and soil nutrients. There is no better way to remember a loved one than to plant this legacy gift in their name.
