Our Story

Why we started Trees for Pets

We want to change the way the world memorialises pets.

In Australia alone live more than 29 million pets. That’s more pets than people! Many pets get cremated and ashes will be kept in urns or scattered at special places around the world. We thought, what if we plant at least one tree for every pet we love and lost.... That thought grew into big excitement and we started the Trees for Pets forest, which has been growing ever since.

How we do what we do

Having experienced pet loss ourselves, we understand how hard it is to make the right decisions at the end. Every pet parent, every family is different and every pet's journey is unique.

 

The one thing that we believe is true for every pet, they would love to be honoured with a memorial tree. 

 

We want to enable every grieving pet parent and their close family and friends to plant pet memorial trees in whatever way it feels right and works for them. It can be a reforestation memorial tree in Uganda, a beautiful native tree in Australia or a large gumtree in our Remember Tree grove in the Moorabool Valley near Melbourne.

To ensure every pet memorial tree is planted successfully and our positive impact is measurable we partner with Ecologi, a climate solution platform, trusted by over 20,000 businesses worldwide.

Step-by-Step Guide

1. Choose your Pet Memorial Tree(s)
Learn about our trees and decide whether you plant a reforestation memorial tree, a whole grove or maybe you decide for a native Australian memorial tree that you can visit any time on our farm in the Moorabool Valley. Once planted by ecologi or us directly, your tree will be added to the virtual Trees for Pets forest and a certificate will be issued.


2.  Create a personalised memento for your home or as a gift for someone else.
If it's a forest scented candle or a framed pet line drawing portrait. We have earth-friendly mementos and pet loss gifts to choose from. The idea is to remind you of your pet and the memorial tree that you have planted in their honour. If you are planting a pet memorial tree as a gift, it's a wonderful addition for grieving pet parents to receive with their personalised memorial tree certificate.


3. Tree certification and virtual visits
Once your chosen tree or tree grove has been planted you can visit the virtual Trees for Pets forest, learn more about your tree (grove) and our collective impact. You will receive a certificate with the honoured pet's name and a unique QR code to easily find your tree. The pet memorial tree certificate can be issued digitally and sent via email or you can select a premium paper print, optionally framed, that we will mail to you. If you decide for a remember tree on our farm, we will match your effort with a reforestation tree that will represent your contribution in our virtual forest.
