"Trees of Remembrance” watches offer those grieving a meaningful way to remember and honor their loved one. Your timepiece will be crafted from a limb of a majestic Douglas-fir tree, a species known for its longevity and resilience. The watch crafted from the tree’s branch will have at least 70 annual rings. The timepiece and associated Tree become a living tribute, symbolizing the enduring spirit of the departed individual.
Removing the lower limbs of western Douglas-fir trees increases their resilience against fire. Douglas-fir can live for hundreds of years, though forest fire is increasingly catastrophic to these trees.

In addition to the timepiece that serves as a consistent reminder of your loved one, there is a connection to a majestic tree that is expected to live for centuries. The Tree Dedication Map and unique Tree ID# that you receive allows for a virtual journey to explore and visit your loved one's tree. A maximum of 10 watches will be made from each tree, thus keeping the connection intimate.

Testimonials

Five Valleys Land Trust

Tree Ring Pens donated two pens to our annual fundraising auction, and they were hugely popular. The pens are exquisitely crafted and tell a great story. The pens make a great gift for anyone.

Hold History In Your Hand

The Tree Ring Pen is a unique and expertly crafted writing instrument. It is comfortable to hold and to write with. I am a pen collector and I have several hand made pens but the Tree Ring Pen is my favorite. When writing with this pen, you feel as though you are holding history in your hand. My pen dates from 1910-2010 and as does every Tree Ring pen you order, it is accompanied by a laminated card entitled Stories From The Tree Rings. The other side of the card explains the restoration of the forests from which the tree originated. It also comes with a wooden display case. The magnetic cap is another plus. It 'snaps' on to either end of the pen. It takes a standard ceramic rollerball refill available at office supply stores. The Tree Ring Pen makes a great gift for anyone who appreciates a well crafted writing instrument!

Perfect Gift

My Dad loved the pen. His birthday was yesterday and I had to talk him through it but then he understood and gushed about the pen. He called it "a perfect gift!" Thanks for helping me bring a smile to his 81-year old face.

5-Year Wedding Anniversary-Wood

What to get the husband who already has everything?! He LOVED this pen! For our five year wedding anniversary, I wanted to give something unique and sentimental. The tree's rings are a history of its beautiful life and all that it has endured, for better or worse, over the years. A perfect gift to inspire, impress, and express appreciation for the memories made over time!

Spouse Approval

I often buy pens or watches (my two fetishes!) and get yelled at by the boss (my wife)! Last night I showed up and proudly showed her the pen and there was NO yelling! She thought it was very cool and really liked it.

Innovative

The development of your pens is one of the more innovative strategies I've seen in some time.

In the words of Herman Hesse "one can read its whole history in the luminous inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured."

The wood dials are hand selected for their beauty and unique annual tree ring history. Underneath each wood dial sits a Swiss made quartz movement. The watch is enclosed by a high quality stainless steel case and a sapphire crystal. A slice of a tree is a snapshot of its life history. Hand crafted in the Big Sky Country of Montana.
