Dedication Trees

Planting a tree creates an enduring legacy: many of the stately species in Anderson Park are more than a century old. A commemorative tree can serve as a memorial; it can celebrate a milestone birthday or a special anniversary; it can honor an achievement or event, such as a birth, graduation or wedding; and it can be a Valentine's Day gift more lasting than chocolate and roses. And while a tree bestows a personal honor, it is also a gift to the community and the environment.

Dedication Tree donors may choose from locations and species that reflect Anderson Park's historic 1903 Olmsted Brothers landscape design. Numerous species are available, from mighty pin oaks to flowering redbuds.

We plant trees with a trunk of at least two-and-a-half inches in diameter and with a height of at least several feet because seedlings tend to get inadvertently mowed over. A Dedication Tree costs between $250 and $450, depending on its size and species. This price includes the labor to plant these sizeable trees. (Shrubbery may also be donated and dedicated at a lesser cost.) Donors are welcome to participate on planting day.

Donors or an honored recipient receive a Dedication Portfolio, which includes a personalized certificate suitable for framing, a map showing the location of the tree within the park, and horticultural details about the chosen species.
