We received such a great response about Reid Tracy's post about planting trees to honor and celebrate the life of Louise Hay. So many emails and comments poured in from all over the world from people telling us that they wanted to plant a tree just for Louise. Our goal is to get as many trees planted as possible and in every country. If you have already planted a tree or are planning on planting a tree, please share a picture and the location of the tree below. Thank you for all of your love and support during this time! We are so grateful to have each and every one you in the Hay House Family.
As soon as I heard of Louise's death, I missed her straight away. Then you told us about planting a tree in her honour. Well, I had already decided to cut down an old cherry tree at the bottom of my garden, leaving a nice big space for something new and I felt this was the motivation I was looking for to dedicate that space. I have planted (in Louise's honour) a bunch of fruit trees and bushes. I haven't got photos yet, but seeing as my children own a signwriting business, I'll get a rememberance plaque made then send you a good photo.
I am very grateful to Louise for the impact she's had on my life: I knew she was right from the word "go" many, many years ago. I love her and thank her and wish you all well in continuing her inspired work.

We planted a cedar tree at the doorway of our Unity Church (Unity Church of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada) to remember Louise Hay - her kindness and wonderful contributions to millions of people the world over.

We invited local Heal Your Life workshop leaders to a day honoring Louise on Nov. 4th, and the tree planting as part of this special day. It is a Marina Strawberry tree and will flower in the spring. Around the tree we also placed word stones that represented Louise's philosophy: joy, forgiveness, peace, etc. Each person expressed how his/her work had changed their lives. It was a beautiful celebration.
I planted an ‘Australian Native Hibiscus’ tree in Louise’s honour on the weekend and it gets beautiful large pink flowers. It will be the centre piece of a fairy/rock garden that wasn’t planned, but just evolved. I will send a photo when the project is complete. I live at Ferny Grove, a suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Thank you so much for this wonderful idea and it’s a small thing that I can do to somehow repay Louise for all her love and wisdom over the years. Her work has helped me enormously with healing my challenges and I use her book ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ everyday, if not for me, then someone else.
With Love and Angel Blessings to everyone
What a wonderful way to remember such a remarkable woman. Louise touched my life and I am super proud to be sharing in planting a tree in her memory.
I seeded the Avocado pip, planted it and named her Louise. I'm a South African residing in New Zealand and my Louise Tree has been planted in our newly formed orchard:
My fur baby, Gabriel (was 6 months old when I adopted him from the Animal Shelter just over and a half year ago) added his stamp of approval.
I donated a tree in Louise's honor through Heifer international so that it can provide support for an impoverished family somewhere on the planet. It seemed the best way to honor someone with such a global presence. Thank you for giving us a way to honor her.
Hello all amazing staff and friends of Louise at Hay House!💙💙💙
I am sending a pic of the tree I planted for Louise...it's a Blue Spruce. I wanted something that would stand the climate both winter and summer. From New Brunswick, Canada. I am very honoured to be a HYL Teacher and Coach and forever grateful to Louise, as her teachings have stood the time of my life since 2008. Hugs to you all..keep up the wonderful job!!! With GRATITUDE
My family planted this Cotton-less Cottonwood tree to honor Louise. I also painted rocks to put around the base. Most of them say "I choose happiness" on the back. I love this lady! I have been to Hay house events in Vegas & Denver.

Saturday there was a gathering of local Heal Your Life workshop leaders (north county San Diego) to celebrate Louise's life and plant a tree. Each person also chose a wordstone that represented some aspect of Louise's work (love, gratitude, wisdom, forgiveness, etc) and shared something as they placed the stone and thanked Louise. The tree is a Marina Strawberry tree and will product lovely flowers. It was planted next to a large angel statue we have.
Dear Friends - here is a picture of a tree that I planted for Louise in her honor. I can't tell you enough how many times I have reread the book "The Power is Within You"! I live in Boise Idaho. Thank you for this great idea. Best Wishes, Phyllis Taylor
Hello Hay House family!! I'm sending you pictures of my baby peach tree, I grow it from the seed!!! It's not its final place, I have to leave it grow. I come from Puebla, Pue. México. And it's an honor to plant it in loving memory of Lulu. Even though I could not be able to meet her, I am grateful for her beautiful work. God bless her and blessings to you all!!
I, Mariette van Dooren planted a Japanese Maple for Louise. We’re on a River property where it is very quiet and peaceful. The tree is growing for Louise and all people who care for a peaceful world. We live in the state of Victoria in Australia, 200 km straight above Melbourne.
Such a brilliant idea to plant a tree worldwide for Louise.
Mariette van Dooren,
I planted this avocado tree in my front yard. Avocados are incredibly popular, and often referred to as a superfood among health conscious individuals, for its health benefits. I think it's a perfect tree to represent Louise's contribution to the health and wellbeing of so many people!
Many thanks to Louise for the positive way I have turned my life around for the better. She was, and still remains one of my biggest inspirations. In her honor I've planted a Meyer Lemon Tree in a pot on my lanai in Sunset Beach, Haleiwa, Hi. The fruit of this tree will be a metaphor of the goodness she provided to make life bright and healthy.
With gratitude and appreciation,
Hello, I'm writing to say that I purchased and planted a "Rose of Sharon" tree in honor of Louise Hay.
Louise Hay changed my life the day I was given her book, "You Can Heal Your Life" and that was over 29 years ago. I am so grateful for the love and work she shared through her books, videos, live courses, etc.
It is an honor to be a "Heal Your Life Coach" and to carry on her vision.

Hi. I’m space poor so I planted a shrub.( and I wanted her plant to be in my garden). It has fragrant leaves, white flowers and red berries to feed the birds. Oh, it’s also evergreen. I thought it was quite apt for her. I have grown sycamores from seed and they have been planted on the Isle of Mull, Scotland and in the spring, I will plant 4 apple trees and 2 oak, I have grown from seed but don’t have the space in my garden to plant....they will all be dedicated to Louise.
I am on the West coast of Scotland in a place called Oban.
I decided to plant an oak tree for Louise, because just like the oak, she was majestic, greater-than-life, providing so much inspiration for anyone who was willing to sit in her shade. She was generous, spiritual and wise, and just like an oak, she lived a long, healthy, happy and abundant life. In addition, Louise was firm in her ground of knowledge and teachings, her wisdom combining the simplicity and practicality of roots planted deep in the earth, alongside unbounded spiritual wisdom, like a tall oak reaching up to the sky. May the acorns of her legacy live on in our hearts forever!
Thank you, dear Louise, for being such an extraordinary teacher and inspiration in my life! Your contribution to the world is immense, immeasurable!
This tree is given to St. Joseph Hospital in honor of Louise's legacy in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
I give thanks for Louise's inspirations and her life. I have been listening to her while I'm home caring my dad in the hospital for the last three weeks. Her calming voice and wisdom gives me courage to find joy in the midst of challenges. I love you and thank you, Louise!!!!
hellooo.. trees for Louise

All the best to you.
Ecuador's "Superleaf" tea. It is native to a thin stretch of the upper Amazon that hugs the Andes Mountains. Grown by the Kichwa people. Planted on our land in the Southern Andes at 5,000 ft., 4 degrees south of the Equator, near a small town called Vilcabamba.

We had a campaign of reforestation in a remote part of the countryside, and I decided to dedicate one tree to honor Louise Hay, for all her wonderful advice and inspiration throughout the years. The tree is thin, almost like a line in the left lower part of the picture. I imagine that Louise would have loved to see a young community comitted to build a better future. The trees are generations themselves, and it's a good feeling to watch them grow in the world of tomorrow.
Yesterday I planted a Walnut tree in Benasque in the Pirenees mountains in Spain. Before planting I leave in the Earth some affirmations from Louise's calendar. I send you pictures😉 I'm very gratefull to Louise and her work.
Thank you and best wishes from Spain,
Thank you so much for doing this. I think its a great idea to honour Louise.
Please find attached a photo of my tree that I planted in honour of Louise. It is planted here in Wardell, NSW Australia with much love & blessings,
Sending happiness & love your way ,
Thank you Vickilee ❤
Hi - I longed to buy this tree all summer (photo attached). It was outside of Caraluzzi's market in Newtown and it cost $99.99. It was just too much for me to spend. So...I kept visualizing it outside my kitchen window. All summer, every time I stopped at the market, I would check to make sure it was doing ok. September came...still $99.99. On Sept. 25th, I stopped at Caraluzzi's on my way to work, walked up to "my" tree and there was a big white ticket on it: $20.00!! Bought it on the spot and planted it in loving memory of the queen of affirmations and positivity. :)
Louise has touched my life in a very profound way ....
She got me to think ....That there is such a thing called .... Loving yourself ....I never knew that existed ...I was given to think ....Putting others before you and not thinking about yourself ....Is the way you can be called a GOOD PERSON...And it's been 46 years , am trying to be one ...Only to hear that ...Am a useless one ....
I cannot find the words to thank Louise to be on this earth and teach us ...What she has .... Absolutely brilliant... Absolutely.. Amazing... My heart fills with love on the mention of her name ...
Am enclosing a pic of 2 trees ...I planted ...Mango trees ...With some mint herb alongside...
With lots of love , am sure the tree will shower love to someone later, ...It's a temporary stay but I know it will survive the test of time ..
With love and light to all ...
To the hay house team and the whole universe...
God bless ...,
By the way, I live in Ramghar, Jharkhand state in India...
Dear Reid and Everyone at Hay House,
When I got the email on October 8th, honoring Louise's birthday with the suggestion to plant a tree in her honor I was tickled, but not surprised, by the synchronicity of the moment.
I had just finished chanting for Louise, the lighted candle and her image still on my desk, when I read the email forwarded from a friend. How perfect is this I thought, Seb and I are planting the Red Maple, Acer Freemanii today!
The freemanii part was extra perfect.
Already steeped in gratitude for her speak- from- the- heart courage, her teaching, her voice ( I loved the sound of her voice!) I was somewhere between laughing and crying for the elegance of the moment.
So here is a pic of the Red Maple, planted on October 8th in Dunmanway, West Cork, Ireland for Louise Hay. Planted with love by Stephen Harrington & Sebastien Roumeau.
Thank you Louise for all you inspired and taught and for the comfort of your voice. I, and millions like me, are forever grateful for your spark and all the light you expanded in the universe.
With much love and appreciation,
Today I planted a Plumeria Tree in honor of Louise and what a great idea! I love wearing the flowers in my hair. The tree is at my home on the Ranch in California. When I go over to my home in Hawaii I'll plant one there too.
Thanks so much again! She will always be a fabulous spirit!
Many Blessings to you and your precious family!
Here we are planting a tree for Louise in Ruai, Kenya, at the Compassionate Hands Centre for abandoned children through the group of Lotus Healing Seva Group. www.girlscentre.com
My name is Ruta Joshi and I am writing to send you pictures of the tree that me and my husband Yogesh, planted in honour of Louise Hay in Melbourne, Australia.
It’s a wonderful thought that Louise planted and it’s amazing to see that you are nurturing it further, so that people like us who love Louise and her work also could participate and always keep her with us.
Much Appreciation and Love,
A tree in West Germany in honor of Louise Hay. This is the forest in 51597 Morsbach, Germany, at the area of Cologne, I loved to walk through and play in during my childhood and still now. I own it since 2010, my parents, who owned it before, have planted trees in the forest from all over europe, which they discover at there journeys. And this is the place, where I plant a tree for Louise. Around March could be the best time. The additional fotos of the chapel shows a tree, which is more than 360 years old... this place is deeply connected to my family and I love it to light candles there at christmas. I hope Louise´s tree of love is there much longer.
Best wishes to all of Hay House, to Louise, Reid Tracy and to all, who are connected with Louise and Hayhouse. Thank your for ongoing with Hayhouse and the Foundation.
Few years ago Louise Hay saved my life. As family we decided to plant 5 trees as we are family of 5. Trees were planted in national park KRKONOŠE, Liberec region, Czech Republic.
She will be in our hearts for ever.

When I received the newsletter of the idea of planting a tree for Louise – I was thrilled at such a wonderful suggestion!
I had this strange shaped patch of land in between two walkways near my garage. I never knew what to do with that area. It is on a slope downward so I could not add a bird bath (my first plan) – so it just sat.
Then I got the email from Hay House and it just struck me to plant something there. I could not plant an exact tree due to the fear of it blocking my garage door and sensors. So, since I LOVE Dr. Wayne Dyer as much as I do Louise Hay ~ I felt they both deserved a piece of green shrub (which I “rescued” from one of our HOA’s updating their landscaping and were going to throw them out!).
So there you have it – Mini Wayne & Mini Louise are now beautifully resting in my front yard. My daughter helped to surround them with beautiful river rocks, stones and an actual geode she mined in South Dakota (my beautiful home state – it is at the very top of the picture, split into two).
They bring a smile to our faces and we thank them every day for coming to live with us. We have, also, been noticing a sweet baby lizard that has been residing underneath them. Have caught him sunbathing a few times and then retreat back under the plants & rocks --- if I can actually get my phone out of my purse in time to capture this, I will send a picture….but is a quick guy! We have named him Reid.
I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed day. I love you all and your hard work; and especially Wayne and Louise!
With love, I accompanied and was enchanted with the idea of planting a tree in every place of the world, so that the legacy of Louise Hay stays alive forever. And so people all over the world know the love that heals.
I live in Ilhabela north coast of the state of São Paulo - Brazil, and we live in a fishing village south of Ilhabela where the unconditional love taught by Louise Hay came with a brilliant light. There is a belvedere where tourists come to this village - Bonete Beach in Ilhabela. Wherever I can go up here to see this beautiful place and revere the perfect creations of the Divine God. Yesterday, October 15, I went up these beautiful paths and planted a small sapling of orange in memory of the beautiful life of Louise Hay, and let her know that in all the world her love lives and bears fruit.
With love and gratitude,
