Our Story

Trees for Tuition was started in 2015 as a delivery only service by co-founders Calder Johnson and Jack Faught as a means to help the APS high schoolers fund their upcoming college expenses. As the seasons flew by and the business grew, so did their vision. The co-founders were soon able to hire and pay their fellow classmates providing them with winter break jobs helping them afford college themselves. Most recently In 2020 we were able to donate $2,775 to the Achieve Atlanta scholarship blowing our $1,500 goal out of the water!

Our Scholarship

As of 2021 Trees for Tuition will have its very own scholarship fund, The Trees for Tuition APS scholarship!  Our goal with this scholarship is to award at least four Atlanta public schools students with a $2,000 scholarship each. For five years and counting Trees for Tuition has been where its more than just a tree, and that's all thanks to YOU!

In The Press

"For a little more than a month every year Jack and Calder pull extremely long hours. Their normal schedule consists of shifts that last from 6am to 10pm. Perpetually covered in sap, oftentimes sporting a tree-related injury, these two remarkable young men are still somehow endlessly polite, helpful, kind, and hoping to make the world a better place, one Christmas tree at a time. "

"Purchasing a tree from this holiday accommodation shop supports the Achieve Atlanta scholarship fund. While they’re sold out of trees this year, you can still purchase wreaths from them. All profits will be donated."

"This is the third year that 20-year-old Calder Johnson and 19-year-old Jack Faught decided to sell trees. And they've expanded their operation to include more students. It's also the first year that the two were finally able to get a lot to call their own."
