An Irish Memorial Holly Tree

    • Christmas is a time when we think more about those precious moments with precious people who are no longer with us. Planting a Memorial Holly Tree can bring some comfort this Christmas, and every Christmas. It can bring you some solace or it could help bring comfort to a family member or friend. Something that a card or flowers just doesn’t quite achieve. This is when a memorial Holly tree is ideal at Christmas.

    • A Holly tree planted in memory of someone is the perfect gift. It is a simple but very powerful gesture, rich in meaning and heartfelt emotion.

    • The planting of a memorial Holly tree is that rare gift which allows us to offer something to our grieving loved ones that goes far beyond mere words.

    • By planting a memorial Holly tree, the persons memory can live on through a compassionate act that lasts a lifetime.

My parents were overwhelmed and loved the gesture. Knowing that my late Aunt and Uncle have been memorialised in this way has been incredibly healing for my parents. Can't thank you enough for the service.

  COVID restrictions in 2020 meant I couldn't attend my Aunt's funeral to support my mother. I desperately wanted to be able to DO something that would ease the pain and loss she was feeling. Planting a memorial oak tree was cathartic for both of us. Knowing my Aunt's memory lives on is something I never thought would be so healing. Could not be happier with the service from Bob.

  It gives me great comfort to look at the certificate and think of the Rowan Tree that they both would love so very much

  Yvonne M – Athlone

  I absolutely love the Certificate. My mom and sister are as touched as I am! Thank you for sending the 2 extra copies for no extra cost as you know I was more than happy to pay more.  I will spread the word about what you guys are doing because it’s really something special!

That tree made my day. Both of my parents were cremated and have some kind of plaque in Glasnevin that I've never visited as I never thought of them as being there exactly. I now have a place, a picture and a symbol of life and renewal to associate them with. I know they'd like that.

Marcus F – Tipperary

  Thank you so much. This is a wonderful service.

Quite emotional to receive the certificate actually!

  A little more about our woodland plan and vision.

All trees are Native Irish species.

When planted when about 3-4.5 feet tall.

tree is originally grown from seeds, hand collected and nurtured from Woods across Ireland.

land has been well prepared, ploughed, and tilled so that roots can establish quickly - which encourages up to 5 times faster tree growth versus compacted soil.

We mix-plant a range of fruit, berry, seed, and nut-producing trees.

  Every Tree means the planting of 3 bulbs of bluebell, snowdrop, and daffodil bulbs. All together creating habitat and food for insects and animals.

This is a forever woodland and gently managed to maintain the health of the woodland for decades to come, should a tree ever be damaged it will be replaced.

Bob has reared his grown-up family in the Naul and John's family has farmed the land around the Naul Village for more than 300 years.

This is a forever woodland and will be gently managed to maintain the health of the woodland for decades to come and should a tree be damaged eg. by storm, it will be replaced.
