Memorial Trees

What is a Memorial Tree?

Trees are symbolic of the cyclical nature of life. As the seasons change, so do our relationships with those we love. There is no change more personal than the loss of a loved one; it marks the end of their earthly journey, and your new relationship with the memory of them. Planting a tree is a beautiful and lasting way to establish significance of a life lived, and to acknowledge the impact of someone on your life.

At Heritage Gardens, we have a range of options for memorial plantings. Our Willow Garden allows for flowering shrubs and bushes of the family’s choice to be planted with cremated remains. Following a committal service, the remains are either scattered on the surface of the garden, or the hole for a tree is prepared and the ashes mixed in with the soil. Families may participate in the planting or our staff will take care of everything while they observe.
