Wonderful. I have to share this with you. You all know by now that I am from South Africa. I do sign signatures for other countries too, even if specified for that country only. I do change my adress to be able to sign. A congresman from the UK contacted me some time ago and ask why I sign a petition that is only meant for the UK and he can see that the city I indicated is crearly not from the UK. My answer to him as follows "Sir, I care about all animals on this planet. The world is my address" He understood perfectly.

Done, I didn't and still don't know where Illinois is and I just clicked on a state and Wisconsin came up. Sorry but didn't look how many trees were planted there. It's a great Idea though. Must mention this to the Australian Greenies and see what they can come up with. I believe it's smashing!

I just wanted to say that I love Odwalla. Usually I juice all of my own juices, and blend my protein drinks. But, due to health reasons haven't the energy. I purchase Odwalla Carrot, Green, and SoyProtein drinks by the CASE. Yes, that's true...24 huge bottles at a time. I drink alot of juice. So, if anyone has not tried their products I highly recommend them. Thank you.

You've already planted a tree.
You get to plant 1 tree, unless you visit a state park and receive
a Park Visitor Welcome Kit with a 6-character code. Learn more .

I recieved this last week in yy private e-mail,
and I was hoping they'd let me double-dip......
Oh, well........*sigh!*
It's enough to know that somewhere in Missouri, there's
a tree with my name on it! :-)

I want to plant trees like this in the UK, we have lost all our Woodlands, You know the Forrests you see in the Movies when you watch Robin Hood - they are all gone - actually Sherwoood is still there, But only just, we need to re-establish the Great British Oak, and also the Welsh Oak, that Built Henry VIII th's battle ship as they were so straight.We could be doing with some of those planted before they go as well. Any sponsors anyone? Any land anyone> We could plant them now and in a Hundred years time each oak could be a house, and we could all be tree dwellers, and life will have come full circle! we might even start growing excess body hair to keep warm in winter !

Wow! What a response! Trees rule!

A drop fell on the apple tree
Another on the roof;
A half a dozen kissed the eaves,
And made the gables laugh.

A few went out to help the brook,
That went to help the sea.
Myself conjectured, Were they pearls,
What necklaces could be!

The dust replaced in hoisted roads
The birds jocoser sung;
The sunshine threw his hat away,
The orchards spangles hung.

The breezes brought dejected
And bathed them in the glee;
The East put out a single flag,
And signed the fete away.

-- Emily Dickinson

Hi everybody,
Thanks for planting trees!!! Unfortunately, now you need a code to be able to plant trees through this website...
it says:
The 50 State Program has planted 175,000 trees. A Plant A Tree code is now required.
This is a 6-character code available in Park Visitor Welcome Kits
in participating states. Learn more

Why are you having a problem with an American company planting trees in America? I'm suprised that you would make that comment here on Care2, another American company. I actually think I hear some annymosity towards America in your statement. Care to rethink and restate?

Odwalla reached the goal they had set of 175,00 trees planted. You can still plant one by getting a code at a state park in the welcome kit.

Odwalla Plant A Tree Rules

To celebrate the 125th birthday of America's State Parks, you can now plant up to 5 TREES IN UP TO 5 STATES in the Odwalla Plant A Tree program. AND, the Program has been extended through September 1, 2010.

50 State Program
The Odwalla Plant a Tree program is available in all 50 states from May 25, 2010 through September 1, 2010 or until 175,000 trees are donated. Go to, enter your email address and choose the state where you want Odwalla to plant a tree. Up to five (5) clicks per person. If you have already donated one (1) tree, you can plant up to four (4) more trees in up to 4 states. All trees will be planted in state parks in the chosen states. Participants pay NO money under this program. The cost of the donated trees will be paid solely by Odwalla, Inc., $1 per tree up to $175,000. If for some reason a state cannot or does not want to accept the donation, then it would go to a non-profit that would plant trees in that state.

State Park Visitor Welcome Kit 2010 Rules - 13 states
The Odwalla State Park Plant a Tree program is available May 25, 2010 through December 31, 2010. Find the code on the Odwalla Plant a Tree page in your Welcome Kit, then go to and follow the instructions to enter your code and your email address, then pick your state where you want us to plant a tree. For each click, Odwalla will donate $1 for the purchase of a tree to a state park in your chosen state. Participants pay NO money under this program. The cost of the donated trees will be paid solely by Odwalla, Inc., $1 per tree up to $25,000. Only one (1) click per code. If all 25,000 trees are not donated to states by consumers, the remaining money will be distributed evenly among the 13 state park systems who distribute the State Park Welcome Kit (CA, CO, DE, FL, GA, MD, NY, OH, PA, TX, UT, MI, VA).

For the past 2 years, along with your help, Odwalla has made a commitment to our state parks by donating money to help plant trees. Itís pretty simple. We provide the trees, and you get to decide how much support each state gets. To plant a tree, follow these steps:-
