My son wanted to do a tree-planting for a community service project, and a quick online search brought up Fairfax ReLeaf. In the fall, we attended a training session, where we were educated about the importance of trees, and led through a hands-on planting session, where we learned proper planting technique. This was a very satisfying project, and we were very happy to be getting on-the-ground experience with such friendly and FREE oversight! Several months later, my son had his own planting project on the grounds of our religious institution; Fairfax ReLeaf provided the seedlings, tools, other materials, and an experienced volunteer to help at the project site. The process was easy and fun and so rewarding, and we all felt like we did something tangible to make our community better. The fact that the staff at Fairfax Releaf were so forthcoming with support, information, and materials was absolutely wonderful. We will definitely plan more projects with their assistance in the future!
Fairfax Releaf is a great nonprofit organization. I only learned of Fairfax Releaf recently and that was through a member of our HOA who had previously received from trees from Fairfax Releaf. The HOA member gave me the contact info for Tayor Beach. I reached out to Taylor to get some Redbud and Dogwood seedlings. What an incredible, incredible person Taylor is --- from the several phone calls and email exchanges with her to my finally meeting her to pick up the seedlings, she was most responsive and certainly set an example of excellence in customer service. Fairfax Relief is lucky to have just an incredible person as Taylor on the staff. She kept me posted by email on the status of my order. She was very accommodating on arranging a time for me to pickup the seedlings. Her vast knowledge of the various native trees is impressive. If you are looking for native tree seedling, contact Taylor at Fairfax Relief. Without a doubt, you will have a memorable experience. I very much look forward to contacting Fairfax Relief in the future when I need more native seedlings. Taylor, keep up the excellent work you do for Fairfax Relief.
I now have a new favorite non-profit!!! Fairfax Releaf is incredible! Who knew that such a great nature-loving group existed so close to the big city? I read about Fairfax Releaf's Spring tree offering through our community newsletter, and decided to see what they were all about. Much to my amazement they were offering a wide variety of native trees and shrubs at no cost to residents. As cool as that was, things got even better once I heard back from Taylor Beach. Taylor was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, helpful, and exceptionally accommodating--plus she even had a tree name, though spelled "ea" instead of "ee", Taylor is a tree person through and through! Taylor and Fairfax Releaf provided me with more than 2 dozen trees and shrubs for our new home. What a great non-profit and horticultural opportunity for our county, and what a great representative this group has in Taylor!
My girl Scout Troop wanted to help the environment by planting trees. I called Fairfax Releaf and they returned my call that day. She said there was not an event we could join in my time period but we could do one on our own. She sent me a list of trees to chose from. She gave me details on how to plant them even a color handout. They provided everything, trees, stakes, and tubes to protect from deer and even loaned me some shovels. My girls really enjoyed it and they want to do it again. The neighborhood where we did planting looks great and all the trees are doing well.
Fairfax ReLeaf is a great Non-Profit. They helped us with our Earth Day celebration this year by providing hundreds of native tree saplings to be planted at no charge. We were able to distribute 900 saplings this year which were planted for Earth Day. Taylor Beach was extremely helpful with this effort. She is very knowledgeable of the saplings and accommodating on the pick up of the trees. Fairfax ReLeaf is a great organization and is a great help with replanting the tree loss in this area.
What a great program!! I was able to get trees of many varieties to plant along the front of our property that runs along a visible road. The trees will help reforest and block the view of traffic as well as clean the air. The whole thing could not have been easier! I got the trees, the tree guards and stakes a no charge. Can't wait till they take off and block the road visibility!
This is an important program as well because of so much tree loss due to development!! We need more trees!
Fairfax Releaf is a GREAT nonprofit organization. Taylor Beach has been so accommodating and helpful with getting my sister and I native plants for our new house which had nothing in the yard when we bought it. Taylor has been so reliable in getting back to us promptly so that we can pick up the plants that we requested and get them in the ground.
A big THANKS to Fairfax Releaf
Releaf is a great organization. They provided us with different species of native trees and shrubs which was exactly what we needed for your new home which only had one tree on the entire lot. Releaf also provided us with the stakes and protectors we needed to get the trees going. Taylor was great she was so accommodating with our last minute schedule and gave us all of the information we needed to get started.
Taylor Beach was fantastic. Our HOA is re-foresting our Common Ground and Taylor delivered 12 native species seedlings with directions, sleeves, etc. Fantastic project--we'll do another planting next year and look to work with Fairfax ReLeaf again.
