Gift a tree is a non commercial - no-profit initiative. Its sole aim is the dissemination of ideas and the promotion of a culture of care for the natural environment, which is so vital to our existence.

The package of proposals here explained is not only thought as a toolkit for planting trees by  citizens. Similar projects have already been made - often very well - in many places of the world, through initiatives undertaken by town halls, environmental associations or companies, for a whole range of reasons.

What differentiate the gift-a-tree initiative
is on the one hand to make freely available a methodology for the municipalities that wish to undertake a gift-a-tree project. The methodology provides tools, practical insights, explanations with a problem solving attitude. In fact highlighting problems and possible solutions, avoid organisers to start over the project, each time, from the very beginning.
On the other hand, the gift-a-tree website offers to the public and all stakeholders, some good reasons for planting trees, so as few ideas to push local authorities to take action.

Summing up, gift-a-tree website just wants to group all the salient and relevant information in a systematic way while providing some useful (and usable) knowledge. The final purpose is the promotion of the tree as a means to improve our quality of life and increase our environmental awareness.

The design and implementation of the project is by 
piero morseletto who can be contacted (using the e-mail within the link) for recommendations on any written issue, for any improvements or any addition / expansion to the website. Even those who wish to report some interesting initiative that took inspiration from these pages, are equally invited to get in touch with piero.
