Give a gift that will grow this holiday season with a TreePeople tree dedication
November 20, 2012
Dedicating a tree – or grove of trees – that will be planted by TreePeople in the Los Angeles area mountains and parklands is a meaningful gift this holiday season. TreePeople renews the urban landscape through the life-giving power of trees. The gift of a tree dedication expresses your esteem AND helps restore our local environment.
You can even get creative, pool resources, and give as a group! One California-based company recently paid tribute to a retiring employee by dedicating a tree in his name for every year of service to the firm. In his case, that was 50 trees!
Originally from a small town outside of Buffalo, NY, Sara Laubacker grew up in a neighborhood with plenty of trees and open space to play and enjoy nature. She moved to Los Angeles in 2005 and after working in the Marketing field for a couple of years she had the desire to use her skills to do something more meaningful. She joined TreePeople in 2007 as Development Manager to help raise funds to grow a sustainable L.A. In her free time, she enjoys riding bikes at the beach with her husband and finding nature trails to walk her two energetic dogs.
