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.
