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  accent tree
  • 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.
