Why do you promote the planting of trees?
Global warming is a fact. Global warming is recognized as a threat to the quality of life as we know it today. Scientists have determined that trees are more important to slowing of global warming than previously believed. Trees are being cut down at the rate of 50 square miles per day, worldwide. Countless trees, perhaps a million each day, are lost forever.
In the United States and Canada, wild fire, flood and foreign tree pest infestations are destroying forest acreage and urban green space.
The gift of a Memorial Tree to honor and perpetuate one’s life is a statement of hope for the recovery of the Earth.
Where are the trees planted?
Memorial trees are planted on public lands within the United States and Canadian Provinces, as part of reforestation and conservation programs. The trees are planted in area’s where they are needed most, as determined by the planters.
Can I request a state or province to have the tree planted in?
Yes, a “plant in” request box is provided on the order page.
Can I visit my tree?
The trees planted are young seedlings, rootstock and saplings. Thousands are planted unmarked in a natural setting. A protocol of those responsible for the public areas where the trees are planted is to protect the site. They feel it would be destructive to have people walking on the plantings. We recommend that you look with pride on any replanting effort in your area, knowing your tree is making a difference for you and our animal friends.
Can I order a specific species of tree?
We let the experts decide on the species application for each project. Only indigenous trees, which thrive in the state/province for which they are utilized, will be planted.
Who plants the trees?
Memorial Trees supports recognized national and international reforestation organizations to facilitate tree plantings.
Memorial Trees and their assigns reserve the right to order tree plantings in area’s solely determined by the planters and/or land managers. Emergent plantings, soil stabilization as a result of fire, flood or pest infestation, program participation, weather and other factors will determine the planting site. These factors will supersede all other factors and conditions of planting.
