Planting trees have been a custom in many cultures for centuries. In the Jewish tradition, trees represent life and are a reminder of how God flourishes His good Earth. In fact, God covered the Earth with plants and trees before He created any other living creatures. This symbolizes a tree’s life-giving character. In the middle of the Garden of Eden stood the tree of life, signifying God’s intention to give life to His people. How can we celebrate the life God gives by planting a tree?
In Loving Memory…
Losing a loved one is never easy. It can be heart-wrenching to think about the cherished memories. So much of the time, when we mourn, we think about what is no longer. However, we can remember God’s amazing gift of life and transform our mourning into something that will last for years to come.
At My Olive Tree, we are partnering with people just like you to plant a tree in memory of a loved one—a tree that will continue to grow and produce an abundance of life and beauty for generations to come.
Trees are a Display of Strength, Wisdom and Life!
“She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.”—Proverbs 3:18
God’s perfect imagery shows how trees proclaim strength, wisdom and life throughout Scripture. When a tree is planted in loving memory, it signifies these attributes in a practical and observable way. The focus can shift from death to a celebration of their life.
A Way to Give Back…
Partnering with My Olive Tree and planting a memorial tree in the Holy Land is way to give back during a difficult time by furthering hope and life to many. The trees that are planted provide jobs, help support the economy, provide vegetation and beauty to the desert land, and are a testimony of your love and support to Israel.
When you sponsor a tree, you will receive a My Olive Tree, Certificate of Authenticity. The certificate will have your loved one’s name on it, along with a unique certificate number. Additionally, you'll be able to locate your loved one's name on our Wall of Honor! How amazing is that!
If you’ve ever thought about planting a tree as a memorial, this is the time to do it! Olive trees have an average life span of 500+ years… so your memorial tree will impact others for many generations to come!
Memorials are a part of our culture and customs as a community. It’s a custom that reminds us that the life of a loved one who is not longer with us mattered and will always be remembered. Let a life and fruit producing tree symbolize the character of someone who touched your heart and soul. Let their memory live on for generations…
