How it works
We will take orders for memorial trees all year long, but as it is best in this region to plant young fruit trees in the fall, we will plant all the trees a to once sometime in September of October. We will notify all the people who purchased trees and hold an informal planting ceremony on a day to be announced each year, trying to favor pleasant weather if possible. Patrons may also purchase (from the retailer of their choice) a plaque or memorial stone to accompany their tree. Additionally, a patron has the option to donate a bench with an engraved plaque so that visitors to the orchard may sit with the memories of their loved ones for a time.
