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.”

~Arbor Day founder,

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.

Saturday 27th of February 2021

I’m looking for some type of tree to plant as a memorial for my younger son. I have been planting a totara every year on the anniversary of my eldest sons passing. This became a yearly tradition as when he passed a comment was made that The mighty totara has fallen which has resonated with me ever since. Last year when my youngest passed I was given a kauri which I thought represented him well but I’m concerned that I’m going to very quickly run out of room on our property and would like suggestions for something smaller, any suggestions would be appreciated thank you
