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:
We present below a collection of attractive tree planting kits that are appropriate for sympathy gifts, as well as useful for a family to create a living memorial to their lost loved one.
These tree kits provide the materials necessary to start your own memorial tree from seed. This 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.
Thought to have been extinct for centuries, this rare species of redwood is making a big comeback in the gardening world. Beloved for their attractive lacy foliage and ability to grow quickly in most settings, the Dawn Redwood is a magnificent piece of history and this complete growing kit makes a lovely commemorative or special occasion gift.
Planting a tree from seed is a beautiful way to honor someone special in your life. The planting of a tree is a touching gesture. “He who plants a tree, plants hope.”
