A Tree Instead
one tree... one lifetime of memories
Where are the trees planted?
All the trees are planted by non-profit third party organizations, usually in public areas like national forests or specific reforestation places up to them. Most of the projects are to replenish arid zones or newly built areas. All trees have a planting verification. The trees will be planted accordingly with the reforestation projects regulations based on season, location and tree specie. Being this an eco-friendly gift in dedication of a loved one, the location would be better selected by the reforestation project where life will raise planting the trees where most are needed. Based on that though, the tree will be located in areas not easy to access but greatly appreciated for generations to come where the earth will be greener because of the tree planted in dedication today.
Do the trees have any plaque or identification?
The trees do not have any identification on or around them. As expressed before, sometimes based on the reforestation location, the site where the trees are planted is not very easy to access. Just the thought that a tree is growing in name of a loved one, followed by a consideration of leaving a greener planet for future generations, are more than enough argument to dedicate a tree no matter where it is located.

Words of Sympathy
When sending a sympathy card or note of condolence it is often difficult to know what to say or how to phrase your thoughts and feelings. We have compiled a list of appropriate and warm sympathy sayings to give you a guideline of what to write in a sympathy card. Feel free to combine phrases and write what feels natural and comfortable to you. The most important thing to remember while writing this is that your sympathy message comes from the heart. Your friend or loved one is going to appreciate that you are acknowledging their grief and honoring their loss.
We encourage your sympathy message to include a sentence or two sharing a memory of the deceased. Most people relate that receiving cards with personal memories helps them in their healing journey. They want to recall the wonderful and special memories of their loved one and when you share some special aspects of your relationship with the deceased, it brings warmth to their grieving heart. If you did not have a personal relationship with the deceased, don't worry and don't stretch to make up a memory. Just know that your message of sympathy will be appreciated.
