Memorial Tree Program

Sponsor a Tree, Mark a Memory. Limited Release.

Cost: $1,000 per tree

By sponsoring a memorial tree, you are paying tribute to a special loved one or event. Your tree will serve as a living legacy and enhance the natural beauty of our Conservation Areas for decades to come. Planting a tree provides many positive ecological benefits like increasing forest cover, filtering water, improving soil and wildlife habit. Your gift will help mitigate the effects of climate change, one beautiful tree at a time.

Where feasible, memorial trees will be placed near our memorial benches.

Some have already been SOLD and now, only 11 memorial trees remain at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area in Bradford.
