Planting trees and it's like is from the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his family). I plant these tree in the name of Allah, on behalf of my grandparents, my parents, my wife, my two sons and myself. May Allah accept this from me and increase His blessings upon us. Ameen/ amen.
Thank you for providing this service for me, I will spread the word and help you plant a million more trees.

Below are the Ahadith (narrations that has been transmitted from teacher to student going all the way back to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his family), concerning the planting of trees in Islam and its reward. Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “If the Resurrection were established upon one of you while he has in his hand a sapling, then let him plant it.” Source: Musnad Ahmad 12491, Grade: Sahih according to Al-Haythami Sahih Al- Bukhari Volume 3, Book 39, Number 513 : Narrated by Anas bin Malik Allah's Apostle said, "There is none amongst the Muslims who plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, but is regarded as a charitable gift for him." Jabir (Allaah be pleased with him) reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: Never a Muslim plants a tree, but he has the reward of charity for him, for what is eaten out of that is charity; what is stolen out of that, what the beasts eat out of that, what the birds eat out of that is charity for him. (In short) none incurs a los! k to him but it becomes a charity on his part. Sahih Muslim No. 3764 “Whoever plants a tree is rewarded by Allah as much as the produce grown in that tree.” (Ahmad b.Hanbal, Musnad, V, 415.) “Whoever plants a tree and diligently looks after it until it matures and bears fruit is rewarded,” (Ahmad b.Hanbal, Musnad, IV, 61, 374) “Whoever plants a tree and it matures, Allah plants a tree in paradise for that person.” (Ahmad b.Hanbal, Musnad, IV, 61).
