Glasgow Tree of Tranquility

The SiMBA Trees of Tranquillity are stunning hand crafted, life sized sculptures, made from re-cycled metals, which have been created in response to the needs of parents.  The Tree’s design is unique to SiMBA, and is adorned with individual leaves, which each represent a baby and can be engraved with a personal message. Its aim is to offer bereaved parents the opportunity to honour their baby in a simple, quiet way and will effectively ‘grow’ as leaves are added.

The Tree of Tranquillity is not just for the newly bereaved but also parents who sadly lost their baby years ago and were perhaps provided with little or no recognition of their baby’s existence. The Tree will provide the means to express a private and public declaration in memory of the lost hopes and dreams for the baby. It is a beautiful symbol of remembrance.

Our Trees

We currently have Trees of Tranquillity in the following areas:

One of SiMBA’s aims is to have a Tree of Tranquillity in every maternity district so that anyone who has ever suffered the loss of a baby has an opportunity to attach their leaf to a Tree close to their home.

Adding a leaf

SiMBA, at your request, will send you a leaf for any of the Trees of Tranquillity, which you can then have engraved and return to us in the envelope we provide. Leaves are periodically added to the Tree.
