PLANT A TREE MEMORIAL
A Lasting Tribute

monument, look around

Plant a memorial tree in memory of your lost loved one...
In planting a tree, you are giving the gift of life back to the earth. This can
be a most honorable and appropriate gift of remembrance.
A vibrant, beautiful tree benefits everyone... now and for future generations to
come. For this reason, a tree provides a wonderful symbol of the continuance of
life while benefiting the earth. Install a bronze plaque with his or her name
on it to keep their memory alive for all who see it.
Good choices for a tree memorial:
- Oak- the mighty symbol of strength
- Flowering dogwood- a beloved and beautiful
- Ginkgo- the classic "memory" tree
- Japanese red maple- a striking accent beauty
These tree kits provide the materials necessary to start your own memorial tree
from seed. One of them would make a great project to involve bereaved
children, from the starting of seed to the planting of the new tree in a garden
ceremony that they help plan.
If you would like a memorial tree to be planted in a distant location (such as a
beloved travel spot), try this company to create an enduring memorial that will
grow grander with the years:
If you would like to use your new memorial tree as a focal point for a whole new
memorial garden in your yard, visit our
