Tree of Memories

The 24th Annual Tree of Memories

The twenty-fourth annual Tree of Memories took place between December 9 - 19, 2014. 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.

Thanks to Steve and Deidre Burke and Jeff of Acorn Landscaping & Irrigation for installing several of our trees, Eldredge & Bourne Moving & Storage of Hyannis for installing several of our trees, Botello Lumber for donating the trees, and the many community organizations, towns and local businesses who host our trees on their properties.
