Public v/s Private Groves

Recognising the need for some privacy for Private Groves for personal occasions, groves can be made Private or Public. The main differences for this are

  • Number of Trees: For a Private Grove, the number of trees planted by individual planters, is visible only to the Grove Initiator (the person who started the grove) or the eTreeCertificate recipient. For a Public Grove, the number of trees planted by individual planters is visible to everyone.
  • Personal Messages: For a Private Grove, the eTreeCertificate will carry the personal message of all the individual planters. For a Public Grove, the personal messages will not be printed on the eTreeCertificate.

In both cases,

  • The personal messages will be visible on the Grove Page on www.grow-trees.com.
  • Only the eTreeCertificate recipient or the Grove Initiator will be able to download and print the eTreeCertificate.
