Information about the City of St. Louis Forestry Division's Tree-Membrance Program - plant a tree in a City park in memory of or in honor of a person or event
The City of St. Louis Forestry Division's Tree-Membrance Program offers participants a unique way to honor a loved one or remember a special event by donating a tree to a city park. The Forestry Division will plant a tree in a selected park and attach a tree tag to it listing the type of tree, name of the donator(s) and name of the honored person or event. Program recipients receive a commemorative certificate and a map identifying the location of the donated tree.
Trees grow for many years making them an enduring living memorial for a loved one, or a wonderful way to honor someone on their birthday, marriage, anniversary or any special occasion. Trees can be planted in most city parks, including Forest Park.
