How Can I Create a Memorial Forest?

You can create a memorial forest with your sapling donations in the areas where we carry out our afforestation activities, and ensure that the name of your organization or your loved ones lives in nature. 

As TEMA Foundation, we carry out our Memorial Forest activities in the areas that the General Directorate of Forestry has included in the afforestation program for that year. 

In order to create a Memorial Forest on behalf of your organization, at least 10,000 saplings must be donated to the site. Upon your request, we plant a signboard with your organization's name and logo on the site after the sapling planting. 

If you would like to donate saplings for 'TEMA Foundation Hope Forests'; 

  • 3,000 - 4,999 sapling donations for sapling donations up to the number of 4,999 Donation Certificate specially prepared for your organization,
  • For donations of 5,000 to 9,999 saplings, we present a Tree Plaque specially prepared for your organization.

The unit price of saplings in our Memorial Forest and Forest of Hope is 38 TL. 

Upon your request, we can also issue sapling donation certificates with your organization's logo and name for each sapling you donate. 

  • For your electronic certificate requests, each e-certificate costs 2,5 TL.
  • For printed certificates, the cost of each printed certificate up to 3,000 pieces is 9,40 TL, and the cost of each printed certificate over 3,000 pieces is 7,5 TL.

 If you wish, you can also create an Individual Memorial Forest on behalf of your loved ones. In order to create an Individual Memorial Forest, at least 2,000 saplings must be donated to the site. If you request, we plant a signboard with the name of your loved ones on the field after the saplings are planted. 

In our Individual Memorial Forest works, the unit price of saplings is 38 TL.
