Make a gift in honor of a loved one, organization or event by dedicating a tree or brick in a park, greenway or nature preserve (natives only in the preserves).

Planting period is November 1 through the end of February. Size of trees will be 2" Caliper, from 8' to 12' in height depending upon species.

The gift represents a lasting tribute as it grows and flourishes for years to come. Trees are an important resource, offering habitat, oxygen and beauty!
