‘Trees to Remember’

Losing a child is the worst experience a parent can face. As a living memorial to a dear family member lost, we donate and plant trees to the families who have lost a loved one. While our focus is on families who have lost children, we also donate and plant trees for children who have lost parents. While we understand that a tree won’t fill the void of your loss, we do hope as you watch it grow and change with the seasons, that it brings peaceful thoughts of your loved one.

Mission Statement

Planting seeds of hope, one tree at a time.

“We need to have the mindset of letting God use us to make somebody else’s life better. When we do that, then there’s a joy released in us that we’re not ever going to get anywhere else.” — Joyce Meyer

 

“But I am like an Olive tree flourishing in the house of God: I trust in God’s unfailing love forever and ever.”  Psalm 52:8-9
