Commemorative Tree Planting: A Milestone Celebration

The majority of us understand commemorative tree planting to be in memory of a loved one, and of course, it is a beautiful way to memorialise their passing. However, there are many other life events where the planting of a tree not only marks an occasion, but can celebrate it for generations to come. As one of Swansea's top arboriculturists, The Arb Team are not only passionate about the most sustainable and safe ways to maintain and fell trees, but also the planting of new trees to maintain our beautiful Welsh countryside. With the pandemic still affecting how we are able to celebrate many of the big occasions in our lives, why not consider the planting of a special tree to commemorate the passing of a major event? The Arb Team believe that tree planting can be a truly significant and memorable experience that provides many years of happiness, as it develops through the ever-changing seasons of life...


New Arrivals...

It's been a tough year for families with new arrivals, especially when the birth of a baby is such a special time. Video chats and waving through windows just doesn't offer the same experience. In the absence of celebrating a new baby in the regular way, why not consider planting a tree for the little one - it will grow and mature as they do. In Japanese culture, Ornamental Cherry Trees are a symbol of life, and blossom fantastically every spring. Create a stunning statement in your garden whilst providing a celebration of the new addition to your family, and watch them bloom together over the years to come.





In Loving Memory...

Perhaps the most commonly known reason to plant a commemorative tree is in memory of a loved one passing. Trees provide homes for so many living creatures and life flourishes in the natural habitats that trees create; planting a living, growing memorial tree is a poignant way to remember the life of a loved one. Consider species like Oak or Sycamore that are known to live for generations and will provide a sturdy, beautiful memorial for several many decades.


Wedding Day...

Wedding ceremonies and celebrations are another exciting life event impacted by the restrictions introduced by the pandemic. With fewer people able to attend weddings and social distancing measures in place, it can be difficult for families and friends to truly come together on the big day. This is where planting a tree in celebration of the couple's nuptials can beautifully unite families and loved ones. In some cultures, the Hawthorne tree symbolises love and protection and is a fast grower in the right soil. The perfect monument to starting a lifetime together in marriage.





Anniversary...

Special anniversaries are another occasion where we celebrate love and marriage with family and friends. By choosing a special tree to plant, couples can honour the occasion and reflect fondly on memories of their lives together as the tree grows and matures. Eucalyptus trees are a refreshing addition to a garden for their height, decorative leaf shape and fantastic array of green-grey colours. The majority of the species are also evergreen; a precious parallel to draw between the evergreen love of a long marriage and that of the Eucalyptus Tree.





New Home...

It's an exciting time when a family finds their 'forever home' and, of course, our advice as arboriculturists is to head straight to work in the garden! Designing, planting and nurturing the garden of your home are important activities to consider early on in your time there; this way you will really get the most out of it over the seasons. Why not plant a special tree the week you move in and over the years, and as life changes, watch it grow and flourish in your garden? Acers are a particularly beautiful tree that come in a vast number of different varieties and size. They provide colour, pattern and intrigue for all to enjoy through the generations, as a living reminder of the start of your journey in that home.





So, there are five trees that will give you an alternative way to sentimentalise a special occasion or reason for commemoration in your life. Not only will you bring yourself and your family joy in the natural world, but you will also be providing much needed habitats and eco-systems for the Welsh wildlife. The Arb Team can help you to select a tree that means something to you, from favourite countries and regions through to preferred times of the year! We can also provide guidance based on available growing area, soil conditions, topography and site exposure. Make sure your tree grows healthy and strong with our aftercare service; we can offer periodic inspections that will monitor the condition of your tree and alert us to any issues, ensuring your special tree lives a long and beautiful life.
