eNewsChannels: St Patricks DayCLEVELAND, Ohio /eNewsChannels/ -- NEWS: Ever Irish Gifts today announced a distinctive way to celebrate a loved one's birthday, anniversary or marriage or to memorialize someone's life - plant a tree in Ireland in their honor or memory. The tree is planted by the Lisnavagh Timber Project in partnership with Ever Irish Gifts' Roots in Ireland and will be located in County Carlow on the Lisnavagh Estate in Rathvilly.

"Planting a tree in Ireland is more than a gift," says Douglas Bell, president and co-founder, Ever Irish Gifts. "It contributes to a way of life. Living trees have played a central role in the practical and daily spiritual lives of the Irish people for hundreds of years. Trees served as landmarks and icons of family and clan identity, and their importance can be measured by the great number of tree-based place names in Ireland. Of the 16,000 towns in Ireland, 13,000 are named after trees."

Trees symbolize strength and life and planting a tree in Ireland is a unique Irish gift to be treasured forever. And, because sustainability and regeneration of the Irish woodlands is of critical importance, this tree, planted as a young sapling, will contribute to maintaining and repopulating the country's forestry, helping to keep Ireland green and providing satisfaction for future generations in years to come.

"There are no other companies out there that offer such an extraordinary Irish gift," Bell says. "We are thrilled to add this to our exclusive selection of Irish gifts, and it's just in time for St. Patrick's Day, too."

Other Irish gift offerings include the ability to buy a piece of land in Ireland in someone's name.
