Why Plant a Memorial Tree & What They Can Symbolize →
Memorial trees can be planted and/or given as a gift for the loss of a loved one, the birth of a new baby, remembrance of a landmark, in honor of a person, place or event, etc.
Memorial trees are so important because they often symbolize new life or the continuation of life, they can symbolize overcoming obstacles and represent perseverance, strength, knowledge, growth, and beauty.

Choosing a Memorial Tree →
You will want to take a couple of key factors into consideration before choosing a memorial tree.
1. Choose an iTrees.com tree that is locally-grown, large and ball and burlap and you'll be setting your self up for success.
This is a much better alternative than going with a tree grown in a container from a big box store where you don't know where it was first grown and how well acclimated it is the Illniois climate. Often times these trees come from states that our out of our growing zone.
Whereas, our large, locally-grown, ball and burlap trees have been growing in the nursery for 8-10 years before they are dug out of the field and are all Chicagoland zone hardy. iTrees.com trees have been individually pruned and cared for by the nursery before being dug out of the field. Not only that but iTrees.com will professionally plant your trees and they will come with a full replacement warranty. Now that's peace of mind.
2. Consider a stand-out feature like flowers, bright fall color or interesting bark and choose something special and that brings meaning.
