A joint collaboration by NParks and Families for Life
In tandem with the Year of Celebrating SG Families (YCF), the FamilyTrees initiative was officially launched on 12 March 2022 to celebrate our strong, intergenerational family bonds.
FamilyTrees provides Singaporean families the opportunity to commemorate their child’s birth by planting a tree, within 3 years of their child’s birth date. This is a joint collaboration by the National Parks Board and Families for Life, as part of the OneMillionTrees movement that aims to transform Singapore into a City in Nature.
FamilyTrees invites Singaporeans and families to play their part in creating a greener and more sustainable Singapore together as a lasting legacy for their children. Commemorate your child’s birth by planting a tree today!

Name your tree after your child
Much like the birth of a child, planting a tree heralds the dawn of new beginnings. Celebrate this joyous occasion by planting a tree in his/her name!
The Symbolic Meaning of Trees: A movement for the next generation
Trees play a crucial role in creating a livable environment in our city. The planting of trees is often symbolic of one generation laying the foundations of the future for the next generation to come. Through the FamilyTrees initiative, families can play an active role in building a City in Nature for future generations to enjoy.
Certificate of Appreciation
Every family will be presented with a Certificate of Appreciation as a token of gratitude to commemorate their participation in our FamilyTrees event.

Family Tree? How About a Tree for the Family
“We enjoyed shovelling the sand and watering the tree after it was planted. We chose the easier option with the ready-dug hole because my son is just two months old, and couldn't really help. But I saw many other families there really having fun digging the soil, while learning about trees and generally having a great time!”
Interview with Family Trees Si Min
“He got to experience nature, to see other families having fun together, and most importantly, to spend quality time with both me and his father—I think that really made a difference for him.”
Spreading the Joy of Tree-Planting with Families - Interview with Dick Lai
"Tree-planting is truly such a richly meaningful activity for parents and children, and I'm really glad my kids, wife and I got to be a part of this project. And it’s even better that I can continue to spread the joy of planting trees with other families as a volunteer."
Making Memories for a Lifetime: An Interview with Hands-on Dad Fazli Zukifli
“I tried to go through everything, like how to hold the shovel, how deep to dig and how to water the plant. I didn’t want to just plant a tree, I wanted to embed an educational aspect into the activity.”
“The tree may not mean anything to my daughter now, but maybe 20 years later, she can bring her boyfriend to that tree and tell him about it. It’s meaningful this way.”
