Park Trees

The donation of a tree is a wonderful testimonial to a life well lived. Family and friends will have a living monument for a loved one, which will also provide beauty, shade and landscaping for community parks. Donors may recommend a location for the placement of a tree, however, the Parks and Recreation Department reserves the right to approve each recommendation. Pricing will be determined once request has been submitted.
