Visit our pricing page for more information.

Below some are additional details to help you understand the pricing:

  • The Forest You Choose

As we offer additional forests in more locations, the prices in each forest will differ. For example, the prices in our Santa Cruz forest are slightly higher than our Point Arena forest.

  • The Size of Your Tree

We measure every one of the trees in our forests for their diameter at breast height (commonly referred to as DBH.) Larger trees cost more than the smaller trees.

That said, we ensure that each tree is healthy and has enough access to the canopy to grow.

  • The Species of Your Tree

We have a number of different species of trees in our forests including redwoods, tanoaks, firs, madrones, and pines. In our Santa Cruz and Point Arena forests, redwoods cost slightly more than the other species.

  • The Number of Spreading Rights for Your Tree

Most of our trees come with 2 spreading rights. This means that you can spread 2 people or pets (or 1 person and 1 pet) around your tree.

Each spreading right comes with a memorial ceremony.

You can add additional spreading rights for both people and/or pets to your tree.

  • The Number of Impact Trees

For each of our options, we include a number of Impact Trees. Impact Trees are trees that we plant in partnership with the non-profit organization One Tree Planted. The majority of trees are planted in fire-affected regions in California.
