The Memory Tree
A tree is a symbol of life. It can also be a living memorial and a comfort to those who are grieving the death of a loved one. Alfred James Funeral Directors, in partnership with Trees For Life, is proud of the Memory Tree program which was established in 1991.
As part of all funerals entrusted to them and as a company funded endowment, Alfred James Funeral Directors through Trees For Life, will plant a tree as a lasting remembrance of your loved one. The Memory Tree will be an Australian native tree and will be planted in a State National Park.
The Memory Tree program has helped to revegetate thousands of hectares in state national parks in Cobbler Creek and O’Halloran Hill and more recently on the land surrounding the animal habitats at Monarto Zoological Park.
Trees For Life members plant native Memory Trees to improve wildlife habitat and air quality and to reduce erosion and salinity.
The trees are donated by Alfred James and once planted a certificate enclosed in a special folder is presented to the bereaved along with information about the Memory Trees and about Monarto Zoological Park.
Additional Memory Trees can be purchased by our clients and also by people who have not used Alfred James for their loved one’s funeral.
