We Plant Memorial Trees in United States National Forests and Worldwide – A Living Tribute To Honor Loved Ones and Friends.

For over ten years, The Gifted Tree has helped you plant over a hundred thousand memorial  trees. Planting  a tree in memory of a loved one, or for someone close to you who has lost a loved one, is a meaningful memorial gift. Show you care with the planting of a majestic tree in U.S. National Forests or in countries around the world — an epic tribute to a life well lived. Your memorial gift tree not only helps preserve a legacy, but also aids in the reforestation of areas ravaged by forest fire or climate change.

How To Plant a Tree In Memory Of Someone

It is easy to give a memorial gift tree in three steps:
1) choose the tribute design you would like to send,
2) select the number of trees and a planting location that was meaningful to the deceased or their family,
or allow us to choose the location that is most in need of trees at this time, and
3) add your personal message.
The Gifted Tree will take care of the rest. Your thoughtful gift will be appreciated and show the recipient
that you’re thinking of them, and the one they lost, during this difficult time.

What is a Memorial Tree?

A memorial tree is a sapling tree (one to two feet in height) that will be planted in the forest location of your choosing by one of our trusted nonprofit planting partners. Unlike other companies, we plant trees in United States national forests AND in 40+ countries around the world. Note that a physical tree is not delivered. Instead, a tribute card, that includes your custom and personal tree planting certificate, is sent to the individual or family announcing your memorial tree planting gift.

Our Tributes Help You Stand Out and Provide a “Wow”

You select one of our beautiful, unique tribute cards or animated eCards, tell us how many trees to plant and where to plant them, and then add your personalized message. We’ll hand-create the tribute (with the tree planting certificate) and send it to the recipient, announcing that memorial trees have been planted. We even have a long list of heartfelt suggestions of what to write on the certificate if you are struggling to come up with the right words.

A Special Memorial Gift is Created

Our planting partners will select the best species of tree to plant, choose the optimal time to plant it, and manage its care. Loved ones or friends will receive your beautiful, personalized tribute announcing the tree planting gift. Besides the tree planting certificate, the tribute packet includes info on how they can virtually visit the general area of the planting as well a heart shaped seed tag with the inscription “Forever In Our Hearts”. These handmade paper hearts are embedded with wildflower seeds that will sprout and flower (instructions included), a spiritual way to complete the cycle of life at their home.
