Memorial trees

Commemorate a loved ones life by planting a tree in their memory. You could give the gift of a memorial tree to the family of the deceased and we’ll include a sympathy card with your personal message or you could simply plant it for your loved one yourself.

Trees are much better value than the traditional wreath in terms of cost, the environment and longevity.

To plant a tree at this time is very inspiring and uplifting. The tree will bring new life to your garden and as the tree grows and changes with the seasons, it is a living, everchanging and positive reminder of a departed loved one. In many ways we are reconnecting with our ancestors as trees have played an important ceremonial part of respecting the passing of a loved one in many cultures throughout the world for miliennia.

The White Oak or Red Oak are excellent memorial trees as they will be around for possibly hundreds of years to come and are a lovely dedication to a person’s life. Ensure that the place it is to be planted is large enough for a fully grown Oak! A Flowering Crab Apple is another good choice, especially for a smaller garden. Its leaves have a beautiful plum colour and in May, it is glorious with an abundance of cerise pink flowers followed by small orange crab apples in the Autumn – very inspiring! Rowan Sheerwater seedling gives great showy changes throughout the seasons- large white flower heads in May, Orange- red berry clusters in Autumn, lovely green foliage in Summer which changes to red in Autumn.

Each specimen tree will be delivered in strong tubular packaging assuring they arrive in excellent condition. Trees can be delivered throughout Ireland (32 counties) within 2-3 days and to the UK (see U.K section on website).
