Fill out the attached application (PDF) indicating your preferred location and type of tree and mail with a check or money order to the address provided. You'll not only be giving a perfect gift for a birthday, graduation, wedding, or retirement, but you'll also be giving a gift to your community. Honorees will receive a certificate, and their names will be listed on the interactive mapping application accessible at the bottom of this webpage.

  • Donation amounts include the cost of replacing trees if necessary within the first 2 years.
