Plant your Love Tree
Love Tree is a symbol of love. The moment of planting the tree can be photographed and the picture shared with a story on Love Forest social media channels. Your Love Tree will be part of your life and personal story to share with your beloved ones and you can follow the growth of your tree. However, tree always grows under natural conditions which means that even though we hope the tree reaches the age of the old forest, sometimes the life cycle of a tree can be short and we need to accept it.
Planting a Love Tree is a symbolic environmental act, and the actual significant environmental act is to allocate funds to nature conservation, in Finland by donating to the Natural Heritage Foundation, which invests funds in the protection of primeval forests and in the restoration of swamps.
