Commemorative Tree Program

About the Commemorative Tree Program:

The gift of a commemorative tree in tribute, honor, or celebration of someone is a lasting symbolic gift. Upon donation of a tree, the honoree’s name, type of tree and tree number will be displayed on a tree tag, affixed on the tree so that all visitors will see it clearly.

Your remembrance will be showcased on a brass plate in the Visitor’s Center on a tree tag, and also on our garden guide map so that you can easily identify it and visit the tree whenever you like.

You’ll not only be giving a perfect for a birthday, graduation, wedding, in memory of someone special, etc but you’ll also be giving a gift to the beautiful grounds of Liberty Hall Museum.
