Commemorative Tree Program

About the Commemorative Tree Program:

The purchase 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, the type of tree, and the tree number will be displayed on a tree tag affixed to its trunk for all visitors to see.

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

You’ll not only be giving the perfect present for a birthday, graduation, or wedding, or honoring the memory of someone special, you’ll also be giving a gift to the beautiful grounds of Liberty Hall Museum. To show our appreciation for your gift, those who purchase a Commemorative Tree will receive a complimentary individual annual membership.

The Red Maple is a relatively fast-growing deciduous tree, commonly reaching a height of 50-80 feet. They are best known for their deep scarlet foliage in autumn.

American Sycamore: An American Sycamore tree is often easily distinguishable from other trees due to its mottled exfoliating bark which flakes off in great irregular masses, leaving the surface mottled, & greenish- white, gray and brown. A sycamore can grow to massive sizes, typically reaching up to 98 to 131 feet high ad 4.9 to 6.6 feet in diameter when grown in deep soil.
