Sympathy Message Ideas


If someone you know has recently lost a loved one, you want to send your condolences in a way that shows that you care. Giving sympathy flowers is a nice gesture, but those blossoms will quickly lose their beauty and end up being thrown away. For less than the cost of those flower arrangements, you can give a living memorial gift that will last and serve as an ongoing symbol of the person who has passed away.

Tree memorial gifts are a touching reminder of the departed and will allow someone's memory to live on in the form of a beautiful tree planted in a U.S. National Forest. The sites for planting are chosen based on need, so the tree that is planted in memory of the departed person will help a forest that has been ravaged by fire. With the memorial gift, the recipient will receive access to a website where the tree's location and photos can be viewed. The tree memorial name will also be added to our Tree Gift Registry to honor the deceased.

When you purchase the Memorial Tree Gift to send your wishes of sympathy to someone special, the recipient will receive a personalized tree planting certificate to display. The full color certificate will include the memorial message along with your name and the year. For a small additional charge, we will place the certificate in a handsome dark chocolate brown beveled frame made out of eco friendly recycled wood. The recipient of your gift will also receive a card that fully explains the memorial gift. Your personal message will be added to this full color card for no additional charge. You can click on the Sympathy Message Ideas link to get some inspiration to help you write the perfect message.

With the Memorial Tree Gift, you can honor the life of someone who has passed away regardless of where he or she is located. We can ship the gift directly to your chosen recipient on your behalf, and orders are usually processed within 1 to 3 business days. We can add 2 to 3 day priority shipping to get your gift to the recipient as quickly as possible upon request. Standard shipping is free across the U.S. with 1st class U.S. mail. If you prefer to present the memory tree to the recipient in person or wish to purchase the Memorial Tree Gift to commemorate your own loved one, we can send the gift directly to you. Just provide your information in the shipping address area.

Send your condolences in an extra special way and celebrate the life of a person who has passed by bringing new life to a forest. Order a tree memorial today to offer comfort in this time of need while helping to make the Earth a greener place.
