Plant a Tree in Honor of a Veteran

Honor a veteran by planting a tree now or donating to one of many tree planting programs. This living tribute honors the veteran while improving the environment for current and future generations.

There are many local and national memorial tree planting programs across the US and Canada. Select one that best fits the veteran you’re honoring. The American Forests (www.americanforests.org) is the oldest nonprofit conservation organization in the country.  Since 1990 they have planted over 45 million trees in the US, Canada and 43 other countries. Many of these were memorial trees. The Veterans for Trees, a nonprofit organization, works with veterans, their families, and friends to memorialize each veteran’s service with a tree. They plant trees in public and private spaces throughout the US and Canada.

Most botanical gardens and arboreta have memorial tree planting programs.

A bit more information:  Or plant a tree in your veteran’s favorite place.  Many public parks, golf courses and green spaces appreciate the donation and are happy to work with you to plant a living tribute.
