Planting Trees to Commemorate, Beautify and Add Landscape Value
Planting a tree to commemorate a special occasion is a great gift for both the memory and the planet it was made on.
Trees reduce soil erosion, capture pollutants, and release life-giving oxygen into the air as well as providing shelter and food for wildlife. Large shade trees can symbolize a special person, such as a mother, father or grandparent who shelters and provides for the family—a perfect tribute that adds meaning along with beauty and value to a landscape.
Plant Deciduous Fruit and Flowering Trees to Pay Tribute and Celebrate
Graduation time is upon us, and what better way to commemorate the start of a new beginning than with a tree that symbolizes the strength and growth to come? They can also be living, growing tributes to a marriage, a birth, or any other special occasion.
A tree is a great way to celebrate a marriage. Many deciduous fruit trees—apples, pears, apricots, cherries, peaches, and plums can be grown in Colorado under the right conditions. And what a great symbol they are as they set their roots, spread their branches and bear fruit.
Flowering trees can commemorate life and new beginnings as they bloom every year. If room and design permit, get creative and plant narrow columnar birch, oak or aspen trees in a row or circle with the birth of each child and watch as they grow every year to their mature height. And be sure to include the trees in family pictures throughout the years for some great then-and-now memories.
