Memorial Tree Program

Memorial Tree Planting Program

Trees Help People Cope…

The idea of peaceful natural areas, forest walks and lots of lovely mature trees help people cope with the pace of modern life and with difficult family times.

At times of loss, the stability of living trees gives peace to the family and long-lasting satisfaction to the many people who will enjoy and care for the trees in the decades to come. Knowing that trees will go on giving clean water, clean air, improved soil, wildlife habitat and huge amounts of peace and quiet for the next 80 years is rather comforting too...a legacy to the family and the community.

The Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation offers a Memorial Tree Program in memory of departed loved ones or friends. We can plant healthy, locally- grown seedlings and look after them for several years on your behalf until they gradually take their place, without inscription, in a vibrant new forest of the future.

We plant and tend combinations of white cedar, white pine, red oak and sugar maple — all strong, long-lived native Canadian species that thrive in our local Rideau Valley landscape.
