HaliPuu = a tree to hug
Trees are living beings full of energy, always ready to share it with anyone in need. A tree will always listen to you, never judging you, never rushing and never rejecting you – a tree will always support you. Hugging a tree is good for you.
HaliPuu (Finnish for a hugging tree) is a family company from the little town of Levi in Finnish Lapland. We wanted to save our family forest from felling, and decided to turn it into a safe place for people from around the planet. You can adopt a tree from our forest, visit us in real life or live on the Internet, or you can download our phone application and immerse yourself in the life in the Arctic.
Our mission is to provide everyone a meaningful nature connection and a place to share it with like-minded people both digitally and in real life.
Adopting a tree
Pappa, the owner of the forest, has hand-picked a selection of the finest Lappish pine trees for you to choose your companion from. HaliPuu also offers a range of locally produced accessories that you can use to personalize your tree. You can keep your tree as a personal friend, or give it as a gift to someone you love dearly.
Once you adopt a tree, it is yours to love and cherish for the next five years (after that we will ask you to reconfirm your adoption to make sure you are still interested). We will mark it and send you its precise co-ordinates with a video link where we introduce your tree. Visit your tree anytime you like – more on that on the Visit your tree page.
