I worked closely with Ms. Beach to find the right trees for my lot. She was extremely helpful, friendly, and responsive to my request. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great non-profit. She does a great job fulfilling her mission.

Fairfax Releaf gave me 10 trees of my choice, along with all the necessary materials and instructions to plant them (includig wooden steaks, nets from birds, etc. They also offered for their volunteers to come plant it in my yard for free. They weree very helpful, and the trees are doing great.

Fairfax ReLeaf has provided the trees, expertise, equipment and supplies for over a decade to support tree planting on the campus of Rachel Carson Middle School in Herndon, Virginia. Taylor Beach has been the Fairfax ReLeaf representative who has worked with our school for the last several years. She has been very flexible and has always gone out of her way to accomodate our needs around tree planting. Taylor visits the school before planting to assess the area most suitable for planting, brings all equipment, supplies and tree saplings, and teaches the students how to successfully plant trees. The students participate in a meaningful, educational activity in which they learn by doing. Many trees planted years ago are now 10 or more feet tall, providing wildlife habitat and food, reducing erosion and producing oxygen to name just a few benefits. One tree planted with Fairfax ReLeaf is now taller than the school. Students have been actively involved in tree planting almost every year since the school opened in 1998. One year, Taylor worked with a pair of Rachel Carson students to facilitate tree planting in their own community as part of a science project. The project was very successful and included numerous community and student volunteers. Thanks to Taylor Beach and everyone at Fairfax ReLeaf who have helped make all this happen! Tree planting with Fairfax ReLeaf has been a very successful, win-win partnership that we hope to continue fo rmany years to come.

Fairfax ReLeaf and Taylor Beach for the past two years have assisted us in our communities Earth Day celebration by providing us with excellent customer service in issuing trees, deer guards, bird nets and stakes. These last two years we have planted 200 trees on the backside of where we used to have garden plots that back up to Lake Accotink Park. The kids and adults who have participated have taken great pride in planting these trees and replenishing mother nature.

This organization has a great mission and is doing an excellent job getting it done. We look forward to many years ahead of working with them.

Fairfax Releaf, Taylor Beach has been giving great support for my wonderful Girl Scouts who have a project for the environment. When my scouts needed tree seedlings, she has provided in short notice. And she has came to the location where my scouts planted the tree seedlings, walked through with the scouts, and patiently answered all their questions.

Fairfax Releaf has been an absolutely wonderful organiztion to work with. From the planning of our projects, to the provision of great native plants and necessary materials, to the provision of tools, to help on educating our volunteers and staff, to the help on managing and actually planting our plants - Fairfax Releaf has always been there for us. As a result of Fairfax Releaf's assistance, Wolf Trap has made significant progress towards achieving many of its sustainable landscape goals and objectives.

Fairfax Releaf reached out and invited me to a project manager training session after I asked some questions about planting native trees in urban forests. The training session provided both hands-on experience with actual stakes, deer guards and tree seedlings (crucial) as well as basic information about planning an urban tree-planting project and the value of preserving urban forests. (My favorable experience with this training led to make a contribution of more than $100--not something I can afford to do routinely or lightly.) Later, when the time came for me to undertake a project, Fairfax ReLeaf provided enthusiastic encouragement, tree seedlings, stakes and deer guards--along with technical guidance about best planting time and what trees or shrubs would do best. While avoiding any bureaucratic hassle, the experts at Fairfax Releaf still provided the guidance needed to ensure that my volunteer efforts were sucessful. They are also very dedicated--when I needed to pick up 60 seedlings on a Sunday morning, Fairfax Releaf was there. This is a small but determined organization with a very large reach--bit by bit, this is the kind of work that will help control non-point pollution in the Chesapeake and provide natural greenspaces for city dwellers.

The people in the organization. They really care about trees and the environment, and this is reflected in their enthusiasm flexibility in planning projects. They will find a way.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Incredibly dedicated, and fun to know.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

I do not think it needs 10 million bucks. But it does need funds for seedlings, deer guards, staff and also for outreach to spread the word about the value of trees.

In fall of 2009 nearly 500 trees were planted at Fairhill Elementary with a volunteer force of students. In April of 2010, Girl Scouts straightened up stakes and tubes around the existing trees and planted 30 more. In addition, about 100 trees were planted in a neighboring community in green space areas. Fairfax Re-Leaf promptly returned our calls and set us up with training, saplings, and supplies. The representative from Fairfax Re-Leaf met us at our chosen location and assisted in the initial plantings. Afterwards, this representative provided additional saplings and supplies as needed. Fairfax Re-Leaf enabled our Girl Scouts to earn an environmental award empowering them to make a tangible difference in their community.

Fairfax Relief has never failed us for the (trees) request we ask them. They give trees even the general public. With the housing development in our area, many matured trees are cut down to give way to the big houses. We planted the trees we got in our property and around the neighborhood. Ms. Beach gave very details on how to plant the trees and how to care for them.
