So many people wonder as they get older, what difference did I make, will I be remembered, what are the things that I made happen, what are the things that happened to me, how can I help my family when I am gone, how can I ensure that the family will be proud of what I have done, these, and so many more questions. Planting a tree leaves lasting gift for generations to come, plant a forest and save the planet too.
A Cuban philosopher said that everyone ought to do 3 things before they die: “Plant a tree, write a book, have a child.” He said ‘I have planted a number of trees in my life, so at age 72, I better get busy on the other two.’
Many older people have contacted Irish Trees and enquired about how they might organize tree planting either before or after their demise.
Some have even asked about how you go about leaving money to plant trees / Will Trees, after they are gone.
It isn’t complicated. In your Will, simply state, that you want to Will Trees, and state how much you want to allocate to tree planting, and ideally where you want to plant the trees (eg- Ireland) that they are a particular species, or perhaps a mix of e.g. native Irish trees.
To make it easier for your Executor, perhaps you can research who you would like to do this, on your behalf, in your chosen location – In Ireland, we can help plant trees in our rewilding location at Dunsany Castle and Estate where 750 acres are gradually being rewilded to nature, and all the creations and plants that need that protection and habitat are thriving.
