Arranging a memorial tree with Irish Urns and Memorial trees means that they will plant a tree on your behalf and a hand-made hand-written sympathy card will be sent , along with an A4 personalised and printed Planting Certificate to a member of the grieving family.

Where are these trees planted?

Irish Memorial Trees have a 10-acre peaceful lakeside location in North County Dublin and they mix a range of 8 different native Irish tree types. The favourite being the Irish oak, The Mountain Ash a beautiful flowering and berry covered tree and often the whitethorn, Crab-apple, Holly, Birch, Hazel and Alder are also popular choices.
