If you're looking for ways to express your sympathies to someone who lost a loved one, if you're not giving to a charity or dog or cat rescue, you can have a tree planted in their memory. Just go to the website: http://www.alivingtribute.org/. Or https://www.facebook.com/alivingtribute
A tree planted in someone's memory is a living tribute that benefits present and future generations, and is perhaps the most fitting memorial gift of all. Your memorial trees planted in National Forests will be honorable monuments and active participants in nature's plan for decades to come.
Through this website, people may make contributions to reforestation efforts and receive a personalized commemorative card - in memory or honor of a friend or loved one, in celebration of a life event, or simply to give the green gift of trees.
If the tree planting is a gift, we will stamp and mail the card (with your return address on the envelope) to the recipient for you. Now you can send a greeting card that makes the world greener. Every card we print is sustainably sourced, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, REC-certified & acid-free.
With each order, tree planting organizations under the supervision of the Forest Service commit to plant new trees in designated National Forests and Parks that are in dire need of restoration (see list of projects and sites below).
Every 1,000 tree seedlings that we plant will restore four acres of forest and create critical wildlife habitat. The Green Benefits of Planting Trees in MemoryTo plant a tree or a memorial grove in someone's name, simply click here and choose your gift level.
