About Us

How It All Began

As avid volunteers and supporters of wildlife and reforestation, we understand and appreciate the countless benefits that a single tree can have on soil, wildlife, global warming and the air we breathe. Trees provide food, medicines, water filtration, flood control, habitat for wildlife and so much more. Most importantly, trees provide us with life by taking carbon dioxide from the air and replacing it with oxygen. Trees are essential to humanity.

From experience, we also understand the importance of honoring a lost loved one and keeping their memory alive. In 2011, we lost our beloved son-in-law Darin. In the days that followed his passing our daughter’s home was filled with dozens of floral arrangements. While flowers are a kind and thoughtful way to express condolences, we wanted to express our sympathy in a more unique way. We wanted a gift that would not only serve as a remembrance of Darin’s beautiful life but would also last long after the flowers faded away. We decided to honor Darin’s life with new life by having a tree planted in a U.S. National Forest. This tree symbolizes a living memorial in his honor and serves as a long lasting remembrance of his life, while helping to preserve our national forests. Darin’s memorial tree will be an active participant in nature’s plan for decades, and will grow grander with each passing it. It will greatly benefit both humanity and wildlife.

After we planted a tree for Darin, and experienced the comfort that such a gift can bring to those left behind, we decided to launch Memorial and Dedication trees as a way to provide others with a unique way to honor and memorialize their lost loved ones. Our goal is to help heal hearts and contribute to restoring our national forest, one tree at a time.

And so our journey began…
