So when Prince George was born, his grandfather, Charles, decided to get something different.

Charles didn't go with a fancy pram or some designer baby clothes.

When Prince George was born, Prince Charles planted trees...

In the new BBC special Prince, Son, and Heir: Charles at 70, Prince Charles gave fans a peek at the arboretum in his Scotland home.

The Prince of Wales explained that he planted the trees when Kate Middleton gave birth to Prince George, so his grandson could watch them grow with him.

“As I get older, all I really long for is to plant trees. I hope it will be quite amusing for George as they grow up and he grows up,” said Prince Charles.

How sweet is that?

Charles also deliberately planted George's wood trees, so they have even more meaning to his young grandson.

This choice of gift makes a lot of sense, considering Prince Charles is a long time supporter of environmental conservation.
