Our Projects.  

Seeds 4 Trees utilizes the experience of top professional tree seed technicians to determine seed handling, germinating and planting techniques required of each project. Projects will be awarded seed based on current availability of seed and the availability of the funds needed to complete the project they applied for at the time the application is reviewed.

Project 1. Tree Seed Growing Kit

The Tree Seed Growing Kit project, which is geared toward the 8-12 year old age group, will give educators a tool to use that will assist in teaching the propagation of tree seed. Tree Seed Growing Kits will be produced, depending on the availability of our limited natural resources, and awarded to qualified applicants.  In order to be able to reach as many organizations and children within the target age group as possible, the number of kits available to any one organization may be capped if the available seed for the kits is restricted due to limited inventory.  

The kit contains adequate seed for each child in the class, growing containers, peat pellets to plant the seed and an illustrated instructional book. Each child will also be awarded a Certificate of Completion at the end of the program. Educators will receive a folder with instructions that will enable them to walk through the planting and growing cycle of tree seed with the children. Our goal is that children will learn the importance of planting tree seed for the health of our earth. 

 If you do not have a place to plant your tree seedlings, consider donating your Seeds 4 Trees seedlings to the LSU Coastal Roots Program. We will make sure your trees are planted in a forest in need of new trees to provide habitat and food for animals that live in our coastal environments.

 

Please mail your trees to:

Project 2. Land Enhancement

Land Enhancement will use donated money to purchase tree seed for direct seeding of barren land or to enhance already established land. Where one dollar can plant one tree, here at Seeds 4 Trees, one dollar has the potential to establish one hundred (100) trees. Enhancing land to its maximum potential will attract a more diverse population of species and build an ecosystem that will strengthen nature, humanity and the environment. The tree seed will be going directly to landowners, organizations or other potential land seedings.
