Remembrance Tree Program

Remembrance Tree Program logoTrees are one of nature’s best gifts to mankind and the planting of trees has always symbolized peace, life, growth and hope for the future.

The gift of a tree is a unique way to celebrate, honor or memorialize a special individual, group or event, while adding a long-lasting aesthetic and environmental benefit to the entire community.


Contributing to this program is a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion, honor or memorialize an extraordinary person.

Your tree(s) will be planted in a public park or other public area.

A tree appropriate to the site will be selected from the City’s approved tree and plant list available on the website. An acknowledgement letter is sent to you, the donor, and a certificate is sent to the honoree or their family. Each year, new donations are honored on the Parks and Recreation website and the donors will receive invitations to Arbor Day celebrations.
