When we went to India for our family vacation last year, I asked the girls what they wanted to do and they immediately responded – ” We want to visit our tree in the park!” Two years ago, my in-laws had a beautiful idea of having the girls each plant a tree in the park where they take their daily walk. It was very special for us and I know brings a smile to their face when they see it. It also allowed the grandchildren to have a living connection(tree) with their “roots” (heritage) in India.
It is really such a unique and special way to commemorate loved ones, celebrate a special birthday, a birth of a child, a new home, Mother or Father’s Day, wedding, anniversary, etc. You could plant a tree on your own property, at a local park…just do a google search for options.
So the next time you are looking for a special and unique way to remember someone and do something positive for the environment, think about planting a tree.
