How to Plan a Memorial Tree Ceremony to Honor a Loved One

A tree makes a lasting memorial for someone that you deeply love, with its lush foliage symbolizing the person’s legacy even after they are gone. This is why so many people take to the idea of creating a living memorial. However, when the time comes to actually plan the ceremony, uncertainty looms large. To make this difficult time as smooth and easy as possible, we have put together a list of things that you need to consider before the ceremony:

Find the right location

To memorialize your loved one, you need to find the perfect place, whether that is your backyard or the deceased’s favorite park. When choosing the location, think about how accessible it is. Also, keep in mind that different places have different rules and restrictions on public property.

Decide the elements that you will include

One of the most crucial decisions that you need to make before a memorial tree ceremony is regarding the elements that you will include. Will you include his or her ashes? Is there a special memorabilia that you want to keep in the biodegradable urn? You can bury these items along with the sapling or arrange them on table during the service.

Consider the plant

In memory of a loved one, most people choose to plant a special tree such as oak or flowering dogwood but there are some that chose to plant flowers and even flowering shrubs. The plant you choose should be in accordance with the temperature where you decide to plant the tree. In addition, you must also ensure that you can care for the sapling and follow the proper directions while doing so.
