Tariq Ansari, Managing Director, Mid-Day Multimedia
I have been sending close friends flowers for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries for many years now.
It has always struck me that flowers are often expensive to buy and deliver and last at the very most for three days. Also my personal experience is that one receives so many flowers and gifts on a special day that it is often hard to find place for them, which leads to a terrible waste.
Grow-Trees has allowed me to send the gift of trees to friends instead, which is more meaningful and benefits us all.
My experience with Grow-Trees has been extremely good, and I would recommend the service to anyone looking to make a statement about the environment while gifting. The service is efficient and very easy to use.
Best of all, the response from recipients has been extremely heartwarming. People who have everything don't need more things. By growing trees in their name one is able to express affection as well as do something concrete for the environment. My friends are delighted!

PATNI has used Grow-Trees for Diwali and New Year Greetings. My Diwali greeting communications went out last week and I must tell you that the positive reaction from the recipients has been phenomenal. You rarely expect a reply to a Diwali greeting but the recipients have been writing back appreciating the gesture in no uncertain terms and praising PATNI for taking this step. I should add that this was mostly an India mail list. I expect a much greater favorable response when the Christmas / New Year greetings go out to the foreign audience.
Congratulations! and my compliments on thinking and implementing this wonderful idea.

It is always a deep rooted satisfaction to do our bit for our environment and planting trees is a great feeling. We should strive towards a greener planet and protect it for our future generations and that's the reason plant more trees. Grow-Trees has been an innovative and amazing association with things getting done online very easily without any hassle. The recipients of the certificates are elated and surprised with this out of the box idea. I will surely recommend Grow-Trees to everyone as it is high time we all take out few minutes from our busy schedules and contribute for Mother Nature.
“When it comes to Welcoming Dignitaries at My Plant there is nothing quite like a “Grow Trees Certificate.” Grow Trees are doing a great job of aforestation along with providing employment to Rural Folks , have a fantastic & user friendly website with easy payment gateway. One can show ones creativity by designing the certificate suitable for occasion. I have special words of praise for the friendly & helpful .Tracking ones tree through “Locate Tree” option is simply great. I have done away with practice of giving flower bouquets to visitors as bouquets are exorbitantly costly and serve some purpose only during Photo Op, then probably head for dustbin unlike the trees planted which would serve at least one lifetime!!! friendly & helpfulpeople."
We at Beyonder Experiences, a travel management company, were long concerned about the environmental impact (carbon footprint mainly) of our tours. Most of our clients are environment conscious and this has prompted our efforts towards becoming a sustainability focussed and responsible travel company.
Grow-trees through its commendable efforts, was thus, a natural partner for Beyonder in its efforts to neutralise, at least partially, the carbon footprint of our tours. To this end, we plant trees on behalf of our guests - roughly equalling the carbon impact of their travel.
We have partnered with Grow-trees for more than a year now and the feedback from all of our guests has been extremely enthusiastic!

It has been a very rewarding experience for us and a rare occasion where we feel both a benefactor as well as a beneficiary of these magnificent green spans.

I sincerely applaud the effort of Grow-Trees.com that has made it so easy for so many people to participate in making our planet greener. Grow Trees are doing a great job of forestation along with providing employment to Rural Folks.
Gifting trees to our Guests at our Inauguration Event on their visit was a refreshing change for them. Guests found tree plantation to be a symbolic and emotionally rewarding experience.
Thank you, Grow-Trees, and keep doing a good job!
Celebrating occasions has become so much more meaningful for me personally because I get to do so now with Grow-Trees! The gift of nature to loved loves is the greatest gift one can share. And I am truly grateful for this opportunity to Grow-Trees that aid in conservation, empower livelihoods and contribute to a healthy future.

" When I join groups to plant a sapling in public land, I know it deep down only few will sustain to see another year. But I do plant hoping at least few will survive, its better than not doing anything. I kept planting for last few years and the only thing that is surviving today are beautiful pictures and memories. I dont know about the trees.. I moved.... But, I always knew in my heart that there is a BUT.. there has always been... Thanks to Grow trees. I knew the saplings I planted virtually has not only turned into a healthy grownup trees, helped children reach school, bought smiles, a new school book, a full meal, a dry rainy night, a warm winter. I now know there is no BUT... Thank you!!! "
