Free trees for all.
Every holiday season, we give away free trees to members of our community. These trees have been grown by volunteers as part of Project Pando.
The types of trees vary, but each year we feature a story of one of the trees we have available during our giveaway. Keep scrolling to read some of our Sapling Stories.
Have you planted a Project Pando tree? We'd love to hear about it!

Plant a tree. Grow a story. Here are a few stories about the Project Pando trees we've grown and given away.
The acorns from which these trees sprouted came from a 350-year-old oak tree. This tree holds special meaning to Leaf & Limb owner and founder, Basil Camu because he has fond childhood memories of climbing it in his grandmother's backyard. These trees are named Beryl's Beauties in her honor.
The Trees of the Three Sisters Swamp
EB, the director of Project Pando, shares a story about going on an adventure and finding the Bald Cypress, a unique tree that grows right in our own backyard. One of the trees in the swamp was recently dated to be at least 2,600 years old. That makes this tree the fifth oldest tree in the world.
