Planting a memory tree for a friend, loved one, or even a beloved pet is a beautiful way to remember their passing. There are many benefits of planting a memorial tree. Planting a tree is good for the earth and creates a memorial lasting many years. Trees take carbon monoxide from our air and return much-needed oxygen to the planet, vital for a healthy existence.
Trees also provide habitat for wildlife along with necessary shade and ground cover. Deciding to plant a tree in memory of someone means that you are also being a good steward of our planet. With reforestation projects available from coast to coast, our National Forests are working diligently to restore our woodlands to maintain the health and glory of our nation’s parks.
