In memory

You can donate a tree or bench in memory of a loved one.

We’ll help you select a species of tree and a location for the tree to be planted. Trees are only planted in the spring and fall, weather permitting.

A standard tree is $1,213.18. An upgraded tree is $2,694.79.

You can donate a standard bench for $870.79.

We’ll work with you to find the best location for your park bench, depending on the type you select.

If you’re donating on behalf of a group, we can provide individual donation receipts for each contribution over $20. You’ll need to provide the names and amounts of each contributor. If you don’t provide additional names, only one donation receipt will be issued.

If you’ve recently donated a tree or bench, you have the option to purchase a commemorative plaque for $290.09.

When you purchase a plaque, you’ll receive one free plaque replacement due to vandalism or theft. Donation receipts are not issued for the purchase of a plaque.
