Building a memorial out of stone and concrete is one way to pay tribute to a person, but a truly unique and symbolic way of memorializing somebody or commemorating an event is to plant trees. A stone monument may last longer, but trees are a living legacy that will grow bigger, stronger, and more mature year after year.

Here are eight examples of living memorials from different parts of the world.

Pine Forest Shaped Like Italy

This small pine forest, shaped like the map of Italy, is located on the mountain slopes overlooking the Great Plain of Castelluccio in Umbria, in the Apennine Mountains of central Italy. The pines were planted in 1961 on the occasion of the 100th year anniversary of the unification of Italy.
