For those of you who are regular readers of the blog, you know that it is just one part of an effort by Kate’s Club to bring attention to the importance of recognizing and appropriately dealing with grief. One way that the kids of Kate’s Club are going to celebrate the memory of their loved ones on Grief Awareness Day is by planting trees in partnership with Trees Atlanta. These trees will become living commemorative legacies that can last for generations.

If you have planted memory trees and feel comfortable sharing the details, we would love to share your story on the blog.

Trees Atlanta conducts over 50 tree plantings a year, planting up to 80 – 100 trees at each planting between October and March. During the rest of the year, they maintain the trees with volunteers. Trees Atlanta works with all types of organizations and volunteer groups. If you are interested in participating in a tree planting or maintenance project please contact Trees Atlanta.
