Commemorative Tree Program

The Commemorative Tree Program provides a lasting way to recognize a person, day, or particular event. Examples include, but are not limited to, births, graduations, retirements, weddings, anniversaries, or death of a loved one.

Commemorative Trees

What's included?

The cost of $425 includes dedication at annual Arbor Day Celebration, planting, plaque placed by the tree (which will include the species of the tree, the event being commemorated, and who the tree was donated by), and care for the life of the tree. 

Ordering Information

A Commemorative Tree Order Form (PDF) must be received by Twinsburg Parks and Recreation by March 1 for the tree to be planted in the Arbor Day celebration. Orders received after that date would be held for the next years planting. Arbor Day takes place in late April or early May annually.

Planting Location

All Commemorative Trees will be planted at Liberty Park, located at 9385 Liberty Road in Twinsburg. The gardener for the City of Twinsburg will determine where in Liberty Park all trees will be planted.
