Living Memorial

Only from Batesville… the Living Memorial Tree Planting Program

Sometimes the extra touches make all the difference in the world. Consider Batesville’s Living Memorial® tree planting program…a simple concept that has grown from its inception in 1976 to become a major contributor to reforestation with more than 13 million trees planted as a lasting memorial to loved ones.

With most Batesville caskets, urns or cremation containers purchased, our special agreements with various agencies arrange for a tree seedling to be planted in selected woodlands throughout the world. More than just a fitting tribute, this program provides for trees that shelter our wildlife, reduce water and wind erosion, and contribute to the purity of the air we breathe. It’s a way to honor your loved one with a lasting memorial while helping the environment.

The Living Memorial Program helps ensure that future generations will know the beauty of a green planet — a lasting legacy to a life well lived. Your local funeral home can provide you with more information on how you can participate in this program.
