Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Planting Your Tree Seed:
Of course this is left up to you, but we recommend planting them somewhere that has access to sunlight and no weeds.
There are two different ways you should plant your seed:
This is the easiest way to plant a tree seed. You can plant your seed in any season using this method even winter!
Step 1: We recommend loosening up the soil before planting seed.
Step 2: Plant the seed in your desired location about 1 inch below the surface.
Although this method is more time consuming, it is the most reliable for ensuring your seed grows efficiently.
Step 1: Place your seed in a container. Pour hot water (not boiling) into the container. Be sure the seed is completely covered in water. Wait 24 hours and remove the seed from water.
Step 2: Run a paper towel under sink and squeeze it so the paper towel is wet but not soaking. Fold your seed in the paper towel 1-2 times. Next put the paper towel wrapped seeds in a plastic sandwich bag. Place the plastic bag in the refrigerator. It is probably good to label the bag to avoid disturbance.
Step 3: After 30 days, you may remove the seed and put it in a dry paper towel and wrap it. Then put the wrapped seed in a new plastic bag. Let the bag sit somewhere that is 70 to 80 °F or 21 to 26 °C for at least 24 hours.
Step 4: Plant your seed in your desired location about 1 inch in the ground.
Yes! Believe it or not seeds are suppose to go through a cold period to germinate.

Tree-PS Interactive Map
The Tree-PS Interactive Map is a worldwide map showing where all bracelet purchasers have planted their tree seeds. On the Tree-PS, you can see the name of who planted the tree, the special message they wrote, and the exact spot where they planted the tree at.
First you have to be an owner of a 2Tree bracelet.
Step 1: Find a place to plant your tree.
Step 2: Visit map.2treebracelets.com. (We recommend doing this while you are still at the location of the tree seed because your coordinates will automatically be put into the form)
Step 3: You will likely get a request asking your device to allow your location for this web page. Click "Allow" or "Yes".
Step 4: Fill out your information including your Name, Special Message, and Seed ID.
Step 5: Your Seed ID is found on your bracelets charm. Each of our tree seeds are given a unique Seed ID, giving you the right to claim a spot on our map.
