Help us plant a memorial Forest in Wagga Wagga for Tamaris.


On 12 November last year, my darling sister, Tamaris Pfeiffer Tait, died suddenly aged 45 years. She left behind a wonderful husband and three beautiful young children. To honour her memory on this first anniversary, her family and friends wish to plant a little forest. As a teen, Tamaris spent her first pocket money on a tree to plant in our front yard. Her passion for trees, gardening and nature were an important part of her life until the day she died. For this reason, we want to channel our heartache into a positive cause that will go on helping the environment for years to come. We know Tarli would absolutely love this gift to the planet!

Wagga Wagga was Tamaris’ home for 16 years and where her husband and children still live. She was a talented violinist, violist and a much-loved teacher at the Riverina Conservatorium of Music. It is our hope that the planting will be in the area where her family can watch it grow.

We are deeply grateful for any donation of trees you consider making to our memorial forest.

Thank you to Bronwyn for this idea and Fifteen Trees for making it happen!

Much love to our family and friends for your ongoing love and care – Emma.

A beautiful sentiment from family and friends of Tamaris. From us at Fifteen Trees, we are so sorry to hear of your loss. Emma has told us that Tamaris bought 3 trees with her first earnings as a teenager! What a beautiful woman. Our hearts go out to you all. We will keep a tally of Tamaris’ trees and organise for her trees to be planted next winter in the district of Wagga Wagga (NSW). Once planted, we will update this post and send all contributors the link.
