Tree Certificates In Memory Of

Many people delay sending their condolences because they don’t know what to say when someone passes away. We search for the perfect comforting words, but worry about saying the wrong thing—so we may neglect to say anything at all. Even though it may not be easy, it’s important to reach out in sympathy. Your words can’t take away the pain of losing a loved one, but when accompanied by the planting of a memorial tree, they will go a long way toward helping a grieving person feel loved and supported.

Our best advice is to keep your condolences short and simple. The fact that you are planting a gift tree is already a gesture that shows you care and acknowledges the legacy the deceased leaves behind. On our order page, you will find a list of popular, pre-written message options, but below, you’ll find additional sentiments for the recipient that you can include on your memorial tree certificate. (Please note that you might have to change the gender or names to fit.)
