The ecological, educational & emotional return from their participation in our fostering program is evident from their statements here are just a few from our first season......
"We absolutely love having a beautiful, full, ornament-holding tree in our home to celebrate Christmas every year, but hated that a tree had to be chopped down to provide us with this joy. Other companies offered potted trees, but not beautiful evergreen trees like these. We can now truly ""have it all""! We started with a small tree that is just a little shorter than my son. We are excited to have a fresh, living tree that will come back to us every year, thus creating a new holiday reunion celebration. My son is most looking forward to seeing who will grow more.. him or the tree! My son takes care of our living tree like it's a pet, caring for it, protecting it, feeding it ice cubes every other day. It's very sweet to observe his involvement in the program. We look forward to camping out with our ""Pointy"" next spring or fall, in *his* natural environment, and making that trip an annual tradition as well. We could not be more pleased with this amazing new service!"
The Howe Family
"Love, love, love! Forever Green Christmas Tree has been top notch from the start. The tree was super easy to order online. They have been personable and genuine and accommodating in getting the tree delivered to our home. Our tree is beautiful and was a wonderful surprise for my family. She has brought warmth, grounding and holiday spirit into our home and definitely feels like a family member. This company is the greatest idea and I hope it flourishes. Our tree has been the highlight of our holiday season so far!! I'm telling all our friends how great it is to do this rather than a cut tree."
We love the idea that our newborn will see the same tree for her first five Christmas seasons.
The perfect solution for someone who grew up in a household where "fake" Christmas trees were unacceptable but still wants to minimize their carbon footprint. Everyone wins in this equation and I'm happy to add another tradition to the list. I'm so happy to welcome a new member to the family and I look forward to watching him grow each year!
Griswold's Foster Mom
This is a whimsical way to take support of the live Christmas tree movement to the next level. The opportunity to name your foster tree is especially sweet.
The Hooks-Allen Family
We feel so good about getting a tree this year! it's perfect for city dwellers with delivery and pickup. And no guilt at the end of the season! Thank you!
The Moustakas Family
We love our living Colorado Blue Spruce tree! Patrick and everyone at Forever Green are wonderful and the service they provide is great. We are so happy to have a living tree and look forward to seeing it grow over the years with our family.
I have always loved the smell of a real tree at Christmas, but hated letting it go to waste in January. Being able to foster a young tree is a wonderful alternative! I'm looking forward to seeing how much our noble fir, Filif, will grow this month, and can't wait to get him back next year. Receiving the tree was easy and communication was great - thank you, Forever Green Christmas Tree!
The Jung & Reardon House
This is an amazing concept, thank you! We had decided last year after Christmas that we were not going to participate in the tradition of bringing a cut tree home for Christmas in the future. When I learnt about the opportunity of getting a live tree in our home, we were thrilled. Now we could have our cake and eat it too! Thank you.
The Pramanick Family
"We are so thrilled to have found Forever Green Christmas Trees. This company is awesome because 1. The customer service is a revelation (doorstep delivery and pick up) 2. We are now freed from crowded tree lots and a belabored, occasionally contentious, decision-making process 3. The act of committing to the same live tree for multiple years and having the opportunity to see it grow, has forever changed the way we enjoy and celebrate our Christmas tree. 4. Come January, the dried up remains of your noble fir will not be strewn about the house and then left on the sidewalk. Instead, your tree ends up in a forest."
The Alden Family
"We were delighted to learn about Forever Green Christmas Tree. After years of buying a cut tree, we were ready for a greener option, but weren't sure where to go or who to buy from. When we heard about the option to foster a tree for three years in a row, we were sold! Our kids were initially sad to miss out on our annual ritual of visiting the Christmas tree lot, but the happy spectacle of Patrick driving his tree trailer up our narrow street and wheeling our very own tree up the stairs to our home was far and away more fun for all. Thanks, Patrick!"
"We love our Forever Green Christmas tree! Our 5 year old son is receiving a very important lesson that trees are precious and not expendable. And we are thrilled at the idea of seeing this little tree grow throughout the years!"
Thank you for making our holidays green, beautiful, and sustainable!
The Pagoulatos-Chavez Clan
"Our children love taking care of our "baby tree" and telling their friends all about it. We have named her Frances Spectacle- and we can't wait to watch her grow up over the next few years!"
"Sir Bruce the tree is adorable and we look forward to having him visit us during the holidays for years to come."
"In a few short days, our tree has already become part of our family (in addition to the four kids, and two cats). We love that this is a sustainable and really fun solution to the Christmas tree scourge of days past. Thank you FG!"
The Wu Fishers
"The Isordia's are so happy to be fostering Aidan the Christmas Tree, our oldest boy, Aidan, decided that he loves the tree so much, he wants it to share his first name."
The Isordia Family
"We haven't had a tree in years because we didn't like the waste of a cut tree and we didn't want an artificial as we have no where to store it during off-season. When I heard about this program, I was thrilled! A living tree! We'll get the same tree every year until she out grows our apartment! We get to visit our tree during off-season! When she's too big for us, she gets forested. Honestly, what is not to love about this program. We looked online and selected the type of tree we wanted, and trusted Patrick and Laura to select a great looking tree for us. We were so happy when the tree arrived--it is just beautiful. When my daughter came home that afternoon and saw that the tree had been delivered, she squealed and gave it a gentle hug. I am so excited about "Fern" the tree, growing with our family over the next several years, and we're all looking forward to a campouts to visit her."
The Harris Family
"Reforestation is a worthwhile project and it's always sad to see the beloved Christmas tree hauled off to the dump so in this way, we can help out a bit with the tree.
We don't have enough property to plant a tree here so this solution works out well for us!"
The Aronoff Family
"We love our little tree and the idea and vision behind the business. Couldn't be easier with Patrick literally delivering the tree to the very spot that it'll be standing in your home. Excellent customer server!
