Types of Trees (All subject to availability and suitable location for the type of tree):
The Silver Birch and Hazel tree are all popular choices when celebrating the life of a lost friend or family member. In Celtic mythology the Hazel tree embodies wisdom, faith and inspiration. The Silver Birch is highly sacred and symbolises new beginnings, renewal and protection. Its striking silver bark could be a meaningful addition to any garden or open space filled with trees which have contrasting bark colours.
To celebrate the life of a beloved taken away too soon, you may want to choose a tree such as the Rowan or Hawthorn – both are filled with beautiful, playful blossom each spring and delicate, ruby red berries in autumn. In Celtic mythology, the Rowan is known as the ‘Tree of Life’ and symbolises wisdom and protection. It’s also a sacred tree which protects the dwelling by which is grows. The Hawthorn is a magical tree that represents love and protection. It is so sacred that fairies are said to live beneath it to keep it safe for years to come!
The Wild Cherry blossoms only bloom once a year and their gentle, pale petals surround us for a short time. It’s because of this that the Cherry not only represents beauty and innocent pleasures, it also teaches us to appreciate the brief time we share together with our loved ones.
The Willow has come to symbolise renewal, growth, vitality and immortality
