Here is a sample of what some people who have dedicated a tree have said..

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.

John Hyland Dublin

  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.

  Sean H -Swords

  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!

Lisa B Arizona USA

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.

Bernie B - Galway

My sister is going to love this , there will be some tears falling , but also remembering the good times!

  Pauline D – Dublin 8

I just received the Certificate and it is really, really lovely, thank you.

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.
