The 25th annual Tree of Memories took place between December 10 - 22, 2015. Nineteen trees from Brockton to Provincetown and Martha’s Vineyard are adorned with lights and scallop shell ornaments each year that are inscribed with names to honor or memorialize a loved one. Remembrance ceremonies are held at each tree and attended by hundreds of family members. 

All proceeds help support Hope Hospice and its mission to provide services that enhance the comfort and quality of life for people experiencing the impact of serious illness and loss.

If you didn’t have a chance to collect your shell before trees were removed and would like to have it, please contact

Many thanks to all the volunteers who make this special event possible by drilling, inscribing and delivering the shells, assisting at the ceremonies, and to the many volunteers who help set up and dismantle the trees.

Thank you to Eldredge & Bourne Moving & Storage of Hyannis for installing our trees. Thank you to Botello Lumber for donating the trees, and the many community organizations, towns and local businesses who host our trees on their properties.

Thanks to our media sponsors, Cape Cod Times and Lighthouse Media
