To plant a celebration or memorial tree is a nice zero waste way to remember a loved one. If you have lost a loved one due to the Coronavirus and tragically was not allowed to be at the bedside or attend a funeral, this is also a nice way to have your own little send-off, while planting a memorial that will give memories for years to come, help the planet and also give pleasure to people and homes to wildlife, for many years to come.
See plants & trees to avoid near pets (avoid cocoa/pine/rubber mulch & fresh compost near pets). Use humane safe slug/snail deterrents & no-dig garden methods. See safer alternatives to netting for wildlife, if used. Many plants (inc. yew & oak trees) are toxic to equines.

Sent in zero waste packaging, each tree features a native tree sapling of your choice, a personal engraved plaque, a greetings card, an FSC wooden plinth, a tree protector and tube and a purpose-made Fair Trade gift box.

Trees for Life is a Scottish charity that will plant trees for beloved humans or animals, in the Scottish Highlands. You don’t get a plaque or anything, just the knowledge that your tree is helping to rebuild forests for native wildlife up there (including red squirrels, who adore the kinds of trees in Scotland). It’s not grey squirrels that are decimating red squirrel populations, but rather lack of the trees they adore, mostly found up north.
Plant a tree in the Yorkshire Dales in memory or celebration. Your donation is used to plant a native broadleaf tree from just £10, to help create new woodlands.
