Plant A Tree Memorial – A Lasting Tribute

When you lose a loved one, a tree memorial is a thoughtful way to keep their memory alive.

“If you seek my monument, look around you.”

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.
