Sympathy Message Ideas


Sending flowers to show your sympathy when someone passes away can show a friend, family member or coworker that you care, but traditional sympathy flower memorial gifts just amount to waste when all is said and done. Flowers last only a short period of time, and most people find themselves inundated with them following the death of a loved one.

If you're looking for memorial gifts that will show your sympathy in a more lasting and unique way, a Trees for a Change Memorial Grove of trees is the ideal choice. For the same price that you'd pay for a tasteful sympathy flower arrangement, you can have five trees planted in a grove in an area of a U.S. National Forest that has been hit hard by a forest fire. The memorial gift is made in honor of the person who passed away, and their name gets added to our Tree Gift Registry for posterity.

A Memorial Grove of tree is a truly eternal memorial gift that gives something back to the Earth, and it's a much more tangible form of donation than other types of charitable contributions that you can make to honor someone who is deceased. That's because loved ones can actually go online and see photos and the location of the trees that were planted in his or her honor. They can even spend a vacation visiting the U.S. National Forest to see the memory grove in the future if they wish.

With a Trees for a Change Memorial Grove, the person mourning the loss of a loved one will completely understand what the gift entails. We provide a card that explains how the gift works in full detail, and there is space included for a personal message. You can have us print the message inside and then send the card and the rest of the gift along to the recipient, or we can send it to you to fill out and deliver yourself.

Along with the gift card, the Memorial Grove includes a beautiful keepsake certificate that is personalized with the name of the deceased, your name and the date. Our logo appears beside it with a brief message about the nature of the gift. If you use the drop down box above to add an additional five trees to make your order for a grove of 10, we'll add for free a dark brown recycled wood frame prior to shipping. You can also opt to have the frame added to a standard grove or a grove of up to nine trees for an extra $30.

Whether you opt to have the memorial gift of trees sent to you or to the recipient directly, we'll ship it for free via first class U.S. Mail. We can also provide 2 to 3 day priority shipping for a small additional charge.

Celebrate the life of the person who has departed in an everlasting way and provide comfort to those grieving by ordering a meaningful memorial gift...a Trees for a Change Memorial Grove.
