LET A TREE TELL YOUR STORY...

Treeternity is your Trusted Saskatoon Memorial Forest and in this article, they share a personal story. A Time to Remember'

 Rob Wurzer's Story by Maureen Haddock

As long as I live, I will think of Rob Wurzer every November. Rob, our friend and business partner, passed away on November 4, 2016. We held his public memorial on what would have been his 58th birthday. He was born on November 11, 1958.

The summer of 2016 will, forever, be Rob’s summer. As his health declined, my husband, who was Rob’s executor, spent many hours at the hospital discussing the business, the estate, and more personal concerns. I spent time with his wife talking about life, death, and remembering. Somehow, during this time, I heard about a magical, memorial forest, just west of Saskatoon. This forest, still in its infancy, is the vision of Mia Hollinger. When we suggested to Rob that his memorial place be in a forest, he immediately liked the idea. Rob also loved the idea that Treeternity was a new business endeavour, like TVTruck, the company we shared with Rob. He was able to vividly imagine the forest, as it might look in the future.


Treeternity is a place to remember people, pets, accomplishments, and occasions. You can even plant a family tree, adding additional plaques, as the family expands. People love to visit green spaces, and each tree in the memorial park is surrounded by protected land.  You can visit the Treeternity website to watch a video illustrating how this memorial forest might look in its maturity. The site also provides a way to reach Mia Hollinger, owner and developer of the memorial forest. Mia’s blog, also on her website, covers sensitive issues and offers helpful suggestions on many topics. While in the process of planning Rob’s memorial tribute, I called Mia for more information about Treeternity. Mia made it possible for Rob’s friends and family to make a donation to Rob’s memorial tree, in lieu of flowers. She provided a site map, and we were able to select a plot with meaningful coordinates. We decided Rob’s oak tree would be planted in plot 11 of row 58, reflecting his birth date of 11,11,1958. Of course, we had to wait until spring to actually plant his tree.  

Rob’s tree was about five feet tall when we planted it in June of 2017, and Burr Oaks grow about a foot a year. I plan to have a photo taken beside Rob’s tree each year since it was approximately my height when we planted it. With luck, it will be as tall as my husband, Gord, by the summer of 2018. We personalized a 9” by 5” plaque with a favourite quote. Mia was available to help us with every question and decision. I wondered what might happen if something unforeseen occurred to the business. Mia assured me that Treeternity has an agreement with the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation to donate the land as wildlife conservation, so memorial trees will be enjoyed by future generations.

On the day of the planting, we kept the group small, knowing we had already celebrated with a public ceremony. Initially, Rob’s wife held the tree as each of us placed some dirt around the roots. She sprinkled some of Rob’s ashes there, too. We talked and took photos, and, as we walked away, we were given a certified keepsake certificate. I still remember Rob laughing at the idea of being a tree, symbolically, of course. I love the idea of sitting in the gazebo at Treeternity, some summer in the future, talking to my husband about our time with Rob and remembering the summer of 2016. It’s a quiet, beautiful, young park, and I intend to watch it grow old.

My mother-in-law, at 97, loves the poem Trees. I imagine you have guessed what I am thinking. Since Treeternity is a place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and other milestones, I think we could give her a tree for her 98th birthday. After all, Treeternity is a happy place.

Trees

By Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see

A poem as lovely as a tree. 

A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed 

Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast. 

A tree that looks at God all day 

And lifts her leafy arms to pray 

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair

Upon whose bosom snow has lain

Who intimately lives with rain

Poems are made by fools like me  

But only God can make a tree.

Why Choose Choice Payment Solutions?

So if the price is important to you, then shopping around is the smart option!

eCommerce Definition, In a nutshell, eCommerce is just the process of buying and selling produce by electronic means such as by mobile applications and the Internet.

eCommerce enables you to buy and sell products on a global scale, twenty-four hours a day without incurring the same overheads as you would with running a brick and mortar store. For the best marketing mix and the best conversion rate, the venture should also have a physical presence; this is better known as a click and mortar store.

Trusted Saskatoon Brags about Treeternity your Trusted Saskatoon & area Memorial Forest

The Trusted Saskatoon Directory Team are ecstatic to welcome Treeternity Memoria Forest to our directory of excellence and brag about what makes their services truly unique. Treeternity is your Trusted Saskatoon memorial forest.  

"Let A Tree Tell Your Story"


When you lose a loved one or have a big occasion in your life you often think of ways to remember or celebrate these moments. What the Trusted Saskatoon Team loves about Treeternity, is that they have a created a beautiful space specifically for this purpose. When asked how the concept of Treeternity was founded this is what Mia had to say.

Well I could never really decide exactly what I want my loved ones to do when the time inevitably comes.  I always thought I would like to donate every organ I possibly can to help in any way but then what would my family do, what would they be left with?  If I were cremated and wanted my ashes spread someplace random would that be it?  My family would not have anywhere to go to remember me if I did that.  I feel like I want to have a memorial place which provides a point of focus for remembrance and I would like that place to be a beautiful, happy, modern place...and with that Treeternity Memorial Forest was born...  I want to be a tree and love the thought of having a tree leave my mark here on Earth. - Mia Hollinger (Owner of Treeternity)


When you purchase a memorial tree...

1. You will have a choice of 4 tree types from which you will choose one. Oak, Maple, Linden or an ornamental flowering crab apple tree.

2. When you purchase a memorial you will choose where you would like to plant your tree from the available 12’x12’ spaces.

3. You will receive a standard 9"x5" FusionCast TM Plaque which will be placed flat in the ground in front of the tree. You will choose your own personal message to be inscribed on the plaque.

4. Planting starts as soon as possible in the spring once the ground is no longer frozen and will plant throughout the season as the weather allows.  On your planting day, you and your loved ones will receive your tree and we will show you to the space you have previously chosen. The plaque will be in place and the area will be ready for you to plant your tree. You are left to do your planting and enjoy the day.  There is a beautiful gazebo on location for you to enjoy.


We spoke to quite a few of Treeternity's clients and we're excited to hear their experiences and what this has meant to them. This is what one of their client's Maureen had to say:


"When Gord's mom passed away ( May 25, 2018) we planted a tree for his parents, giving their wedding date and each of their birth and passing dates. Then I decided to plant a tree for my parents in the same way. We have reserved a spot to plant a tree for ourselves on our 50th which is December 2020...so we will plant it early. That prompted my daughter to think about one for their 20th which is in 2025. We fancy having an entire corner of forest for our family trees. The grandchildren already feel it is their forest. I have recommended Treeternity to others and have found comfort and beauty in this place," - Maureen Haddock 


Treeternity is truly a special place. Whether it is finding a way to remember a loved one or pet after they have passed and the funeral is over or celebrating an anniversary, birthday or another milestone Treeternity is a perfect place. These trees are truly a unique way to cope with difficult times in your life and provide closure for your family. They also are a way to celebrate milestones in your life and watch the tree grow for years to come. 

We are thrilled to give the thumbs up to Mia and Treeternity your Trusted Saskatoon Memorial Forest! See all they do and read client testimonials on Treeternity listing here on the Trusted Saskatoon Directory
