Memorial Program

Planting a tree or dedicating a bench in a City park or other City-owned land is a beautiful way to honor a loved one and also provides a gift to the whole community. Trees are planted and benches installed on City-owned land for all to enjoy. Forestry staff will plant the tree on City-owned grounds in the spring or fall, and you will receive a certificate suitable for framing. It’s a gift that can last through several lifetimes, a gift that keeps on giving.

The gift of a memorial tree or bench is appropriate for many occasions.

  • In memory of someone who has passed away
  • In honor of a dedicated service member
  • To celebrate a birthday, graduation, wedding, retirement, or other occasions
