The best gift you can give

This holiday season, the best gift you can give someone doesn’t have a bow and can’t fit in a box. It’s messy, dirty, heavy, and might be wrapped (in burlap!).

It’s a young tree destined for a magical life in the District. Maybe it was planted by longtime volunteers. Maybe it was planted by school kids who have never planted anything before. Maybe its new home is in lush Rock Creek Park, or maybe it’s bringing shade to a Recreation Center.

Regardless, it’s a welcome and much needed present to D.C. Trees will provide shade, health benefits, and bring beauty and joy to countless Washingtonians, now and for generations to come. When you make your gift to Casey Trees you’re giving the District one of the best gifts: Trees.
