Touching Lives of Families

Our Living Memorial® program, in which the significance of a unique life is symbolized with the planting of a tree, is a special way to honor the memory of a loved one.

Arranged through Your Funeral Home

Upon the purchase a qualifying Batesville product and at the request of your funeral home, Batesville makes a donation for a tree seedling to be planted in a national forest or woodland.

Planted in Partnership

In partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, the Canadian Institute of Forestry and other international forestry organizations, these seedlings help to re-establish woodlands destroyed by forest fires, blight and other natural disasters.

Since 1976

Since the program’s inception nearly 50 years ago, Batesville has planted more than 14.5 million trees in honor of loved ones at no additional cost to their families.

A Living Memorial

Helping become more than a living, majestic memorial to your loved one. They also help provide shelter for wildlife and create a cleaner, more sustainable world for future generations.
