A tree will outlive us and carry an abundance of life.

Forests allow life on Earth to flourish
Trees have different symbolic meanings. For example, Oak symbolises prosperity and longevity, Douglas Fir represents constancy and resistance, and Beech is associated with knowledge and wisdom. This gives you the possibility to choose a tree that symbolises the characteristics of the person you would like to commemorate. The tree will be planted in one of our forests (in France) alongside other trees that may be planted for other occasions, such as births, forming a circle of life. The tree will remain in our forest, continue growing, and benefit biodiversity.

We recommend that you create a gift when purchasing the tree to be able to send the tree to the family or loved ones of the deceased. To do this, click on the ‘Create a gift ’ button when you are in your basket. You can then create a gift card with a personalised message for the receiver of the tree. That way, the receiver of the tree will be able to read about the tree, the species, the forest where it is planted, and the GPS coordinates.
We do not physically label the trees, as we want to protect our forests as best as possible. However, the receiver of the tree will be able to name the tree virtually from their EcoTree account. We do provide GPS coordinated for each tree, which is accessible from the EcoTree account, and as our forests usually are open from April to October, you and the receiver(s) of the tree are welcome to visit the tree if you wish to do so.
Some trees you can find in our TreeShop are already planted. But if this is not the case, the plantations will be done by our foresters. Several hundred young trees are planted in one day, and planting dates depend on weather conditions, the availability of plants in the nursery and that of forestry workers. Therefore, it is too complicated to plan to allow the public to attend the plantings.
The trees have a cutting horizon just like our other trees. If you wish for the tree to stand in the forest for as long as possible we recommend opting for a tree species with a long harvesting horizon, such as a Corsican Pine. You can check the estimated time before cutting of each tree in the TreeShop.
