• Choosing a Hawaiian Tree Legacy

    Planting a tree in memorial of a lost loved one or friend is a time-honored tradition. Trees symbolize enduring hope, growing stronger each year and budding with life. When incorporated into funeral service arrangements at a cemetery, the Hawaiian Tree Legacy is a thoughtful addition that will benefit not just those affected by a recent loss, but also future generations and the planet.

    If you choose the Hawaiian Tree Legacy as part of your funeral service arrangements, a Koa Tree will be planted in Hilo, memorializing your loved one to all who stop to admire the beauty of this legendary Hawaiian tree. The Koa has played an important role in Hawaiian culture for countless generations. Koa trees are native to Hawaii, and symbolize integrity and strength. Wood from the Koa is even used in traditional Hawaiian weddings as a symbol of lasting commitment.

    If you are interested in learning more about the Koa tree and how a Hawaiian Tree Legacy can memorialize your loved one, call Valley of the Temples Memorial Park at (808) 239-8811. One of our thoughtful staff members will be happy to help you choose a fitting memorial for your loved one that extends beyond our beautiful cemetery grounds in Oahu, HI.
