Planting  a "Tree of Remembrance" is a meaningful expression of caring and love.                                                                                                                           Every May Hillcrest Funeral Home and their community volunteers work together to plant trees  adjacent to The Prescott and Russell Recreation Trail  in Champlain Township it the McAlpine Forever Forest . To date we have planted over 600 trees of various species.

A personalized card, keepsake certificate and tree charm with an acknowledgment of who planted the tree will be sent to you or, on your behalf, to a person or family of your choice.​

The name of the individual or family whom the tree is being planted for will be permanently listed on the  "Trees of Remembrance" website  and your name and personal message will also be displayed.​
