TreeFolks Offers Delivery of Partridges and Pear Trees for your Families and Friends this Holiday Season

Austin, TX — Looking for that special gift for your own true love?  A plush partridge in a live pear tree will charm the gardeners, birders and carolers in your life.

For a $100 donation, TreeFolks will deliver a 5-gallon, ready-to-plant Kieffer or Bartlett pear tree, complete with an Audubon Society toy partridge, to any household in Hays, Bastrop, or Travis counties.  For an additional $50, TreeFolks will even dig the hole and plant the tree for you.  The trees will arrive in time for the holidays – and will yield fresh pears for years to come.

“The trees we’ve selected are well adapted to the challenging climate and soils of central Texas.   Plant them in a sunny spot and they’ll grow fast and bear a large crop.  They’re ideal for home gardeners,” said Greg Mast, manager of the Urban Orchards program at TreeFolks.   “And they make a great perch for a cute little partridge.”

Developed by the Audubon Society, the plush toy bird features the white belly and black mask of the striped red-legged partridge.  It even makes accurate bird sounds, courtesy of the Cornell Ornithology Lab.

Each purchase of a partridge in a pear tree supports TreeFolks’ Urban Orchards program.  Urban Orchards engages communities to plant fruit and nut trees in public spaces.

Orders must be received before December 12.  Supplies are limited, and delivery area is restricted to Hays, Bastrop and Travis counties.
