Use of Site

Be nice. Keep it clean. Kids in carpool alert. Harassment in any manner or form on the site, including via e-mail, chat, or by use of obscene or abusive language, is so 1980’s, and strictly forbidden. Impersonation of others, including a TheTreeGeek.com, Yogi Bear or other licensed employee, host, or representative, as well as other members or visitors on the site is not necessary and very prohibited. You may not upload to, distribute, or otherwise publish through the site any content which is libelous, defamatory, obscene, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, illegal, or otherwise objectionable which may constitute or encourage a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party or which may otherwise give rise to liability or violate any law. If you are really that bored that you should stoop to that level, we recommend a more positive hobby, maybe watercolor painting, yoga, or running. You may not upload commercial content on the site or use the site to solicit others to join or become members of any other commercial online service or other organization. Find your own database, leave our good friends of the trees alone.

Third-Party Links

Great job getting through all that. Now that the formalities and legal language is covered, let’s get back to the fun stuff, saving trees! Thanks for shopping, visiting our site and spreading the love.
