Dedicate an Oak Tree
Gift an Oak Tree, for when words are not enough
The Oak Tree
We are grateful to Coillte and the Benedectine monks in Glenstal Abbey who provided St. Gabriel’s with a beautiful oak tree forest in 2003. Their kindness has brought this initiative to life. These Oak Trees were planted in a specially created nature reserve, part of the ancient primeval forest at Glenstal Abbey.
The Oak Tree is a potent symbol of strength and courage. It has been admired through the ages for its strength, its size and its beauty, and was regarded in ancient Irish mythology as the most sacred of all trees. Trees are living things and they play an important role in maintaining and preserving our natural eco systems.
As long as your message is noble and true, the mighty oak will bear it for you.
If you’re looking for a unique, ever-lasting gift to mark a special occasion - christening, wedding, retirement, new beginnings… you’ve found it. When simple words are not enough, buy an oak tree for someone special through St. Gabriel’s.
Why buy an Oak Tree gift card?
Traditionally, we plant trees in honour of an accomplishment, to mark a milestone, to commemorate a special occasion or to celebrate the life of a loved one. The dedication of an Oak Tree serves as an ideal birthday, anniversary or retirement present, a gift to celebrate the birth of a baby or a gesture in memory of a loved one, as a thank you, as a testimony to friendship or to simply say I love you.
The purchase of an Oak Tree through St. Gabriel’s means that your donation goes towards improving the lives of children and young adults with multiple physical disabilities attending St. Gabriel’s School & Centre.
Planted in a specially created nature reserve, your tree will have its roots in the ancient primeval forest at Glenstal Abbey.
Because this special gift will be as unique as the sentiments it represents, whatever your sentiment, however heartfelt it is, the dedication of an Oak Tree will guarantee its integrity and endurance.
