The Oregon State Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc is working to provide replacement trees to victims of Oregon’s 2020 wildfire losses.
You can Help us achieve our goal!

Donation checks may be sent to:
OSFGC, Inc. Promise Trees Project – c/o Peggy Trees – P.O. Box 1418, Sherwood, OR 97140 

GET THE WORD OUT!  The Promise Tree Team is asking for all club members to spread the word. We have vouchers to give away to Homeowners of the 2020 fire loses. Follow the links below for information to share with your communities. Post the flyers on community bulletin boards, place service notices in your local newspapers, radio, television, and word of mouth. It has been noted that rebuilding is slow at this time, but most properties have a corner that will accept a tree and mark an owners intent for renewal, regardless of how long it takes to rebuild their home.    This is a CALL TO ACTION! 

Promise Trees Information 

In the Fall of 2020, it seemed like Oregon was on fire. More than 4000 families lost their homes, their memories, and their neighborhoods. The members of the OSFGC wanted to do more than help with the initial needs. They wanted to give homeowners who are rebuilding a Tree.

Through County building departments, fire victim related organizations, and fire departments, $50 vouchers to buy a tree will be distributed. Homeowners who lost homes in the 2020 fire season who are rebuilding and have obtained a validated building permit are eligible for a voucher.  Follow these links for OBTAINING VOUCHERS and to see a LISTOF NURSERIES that will honor your voucher.

Our FLYER is ready for you to print. Please post this to your community bulletin boards, newspapers, radio stations, and hand it out to anyone interested in helping us rebuild our Green Oregon.
