Tree Memorial Program
The Darien Park District offers a tree memorial program called "Trees for Memories."
Lasting Recognition: By sponsoring a tree, you are giving back to your community and providing a lasting memorial to your loved one, or to commemorate a special event. Your tree will be a living remembrance that will enhance the community for many years to come.
Making A Difference: A tree's green foliage provides cool shade during the summer months and a warm display of brilliant colors in the fall.
Once you decide upon a park location, our staff will assist you to select the species of tree best suited to that location. A mulched tree ring will be placed around the base of the tree to further ensure the tree’s welfare and aesthetic appearance.
A memorial leaf will be installed on the wall of the Community Center on the Tree of Memories. The leaf will have the person’s name that the tree was dedicated to, the type of tree, the location of the tree, and the year it was planted. If you would like a plaque for the base of the tree there would be an additional charge of $30.00.
Trees will be planted either in the Spring or Fall, depending upon the type of tree chosen. The application deadline is April 1st for Spring and September 1st for Fall.
Prices start at $200.
