The dedication of a memorial tree is not only an excellent way to give tribute to a loved one or a meaningful event, but also brings life and beauty to the community for years to come.
To begin the Memorial Tree process, please complete and submit an application. A parks staff representative will then contact you to discuss the feasibility of your location, desire tree species and your involvement. Payment will be due when a location and tree species is agreed upon. Park staff will move forward with the purchase of the tree and scheduling a date and time for the dedication when payment is received.
