Honor a friend or loved one by dedicating a tree in Davis. Share your commitment to keeping Davis green, clean, and cool for many years to come.
The Tree Tribute program funds the planting and care of a tree in a Davis park, greenbelt, or school ground. A notice of your gift will be sent to your honoree and you will both be notified of the planting event – we hope you can come and enjoy the pleasure of personally contributing to your city’s future. Tree Tributes of this kind are available in denominations of $50 (cost of tree) and $200 (cost of tree plus 3 years maintenance). Due to the nature of this planting program, trees cannot be individually identified.
If you would prefer an individualized dedication, Tree Tributes may be made in our Honorary Tree Groves, accompanied by a permanent engraved plaque with up to six lines of text ($1,000). A private ceremony may be arranged for the tree planting or plaque installation. Honorary Tree Groves are located on Shasta Drive and Mace Ranch Park. The Tree Davis office will consult with you about the choice of tree, location, and plaque inscription. For more information, please see our Tree Tribute Brochure.
Testimonial from the Samartino Family
I’m so grateful for the Tree Tribute program offered by Tree Davis! Losing my mom left such an empty void in my life but planting a living tree in her memory has provided me with so much comfort and peace. Not only has it given my family and I a place to go and reflect but also provides beauty, health, and happiness to our surrounding park and city. My mom loved trees and I can picture the smile on her face the day we planted it. I suspect this tree will continue to live and provide beauty and shade long after I’ve left this world and that makes me happy.
Huge shoutout to Tree Davis for the opportunity to plant a tree in my grandmother’s honor after her death last year! During the last few years of her life, we spent many hours discussing what would happen after she was gone. Unfortunately, that time came sooner than expected but Tree Davis provided the chance to fulfill one of her last wishes – being memorialized with a tree. At her funeral, I said: “Like a tree, her love is planted in each of our hearts. The roots are in place to provide the resources needed to keep sharing that intense love with the world. This tree of love will never die, but continue growing bigger and stronger branches each day as she continues to live on within each of us.” These words could not be truer – and I extend my deepest gratitude to Tree Davis for giving us the chance to plant her memorial right here in town, where my family and I can visit to keep her memory alive for many years to come!
