From concept to reality

The concept of a modern memorial originated from Anita van Bokhorst and José Visser. From their idea, José designed the memorial tree, shortly before her sudden death in 2016.

Lovingly, Anita and José’s husband Diederik Everts continue the (Dutch) company Gedenk-Bomen. There are now dozens of memorial trees in the Netherlands and several other European countries. In each installed tree a memorial leaf with José’s name is placed.

Custom remembrance projects

Apart from our memorial trees, we also design and install custom projects, focussing on new and contemporary ways of remembrance.

For example, a memorial pond with 36 ceramic water lily urns, or a memorial garden with 48 marble columns with urn caches topped with hand crafted ceramic pine-cones.
