A tree planted to honor a loved one also provides a lasting environmental improvement
When you plant a tree in one of our National Forests to honor a loved one you’re celebrating the significance of their life and continuing their positive impact to improve our world for generations to come. Trees provide food, shelter and air that life on our planet depends on. Without trees, humans and most wildlife would not be able to survive.
The Greener Planet Tree Tribute trees celebrate life by supporting it. Our trees are expertly planted by the U.S. Forestry Service in our National Forests where they are most needed and will provide the greatest benefit. Forestation needs based forest fires, droughts, insect infestation, and other events will dictate what kind of trees are planted and where. Because needs are constantly changing, it is not possible to select the type of tree planted for the Honorarium package but rest assured your tree will be planted to provide the greatest good. Cremains scattering is not part of this service.
The Greener Planet Tree Tribute package includes:
- The careful selection and planting of a tree by the U.S. Forestry Service in one of 17 U.S. National Forests
- A beautiful water color print and message in a framed card and a separate, personalized note for you to express your own thoughts
- An online memorial for you and others to express heartfelt feelings and share memories
