Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins renews membership in tree-planting program
Littleton, N.H. — Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home in Rockland has renewed its affiliation with Lofty Oaks Association, a New Hampshire organization dedicated to reforestation and conservation efforts in Maine.
The firm arranges to have a tree planting for each funeral service to provide a living memorial in honor of the deceased and to renew the forest life of Maine.
The memorial trees are planted in the spring and fall. This program is part of the large endeavor to restore the landscape with the eternal beauty of living trees.
After each service, close family members and friends are informed that the memorial tree has been arranged for by Walker Hutchins of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home. When the tree has been planted, the designated people will receive a certificate of planting suitable for framing and keeping in the family's history.
A total of 11,638 trees have been planted in Maine through this program.
