Do the trees have any plaque or identification?

The trees do not have any identification on or around them. As expressed before, sometimes based on the reforestation location, the site where the trees are planted is not very easy to access. Just the thought that a tree is growing in name of a loved one, followed by a consideration of leaving a greener planet for future generations, are more than enough argument to dedicate a tree no matter where it is located.

Where are the trees planted?

All the trees are planted by non-profit third party organizations, usually in public areas like national forests or specific reforestation places up to them. Most of the projects are to replenish arid zones or newly built areas. All trees have a planting verification. The trees will be planted accordingly with the reforestation projects regulations based on season, location and tree specie. Being this an eco-friendly gift in dedication of a loved one, the location would be better selected by the reforestation project where life will raise planting the trees where most are needed. Based on that though, the tree will be located in areas not easy to access but greatly appreciated for generations to come where the earth will be greener because of the tree planted in dedication today.

Your plant a tree gift will support reforestation efforts in locations such as:
