Many people form a strong connection to trees over time. Our Adopt-a-Tree program is a way to support the garden while attaching a deep meaning to a tree. Your adopted tree could be a memento of a special day (e.g. retirement, wedding, anniversary) or the birth/death of a loved one.
When you adopt a tree, you also support the Garden area surrounding the tree along with the entire Garden. It’s a way to make a gesture today that contributes to the future. A Tree Adoption lasts 20 years, after which you will be given first chance to re-sponsor before it is offered to others.
What You Will Receive
Once your adoption is complete, you will receive:
- an official donation receipt for tax purposes
- an Adoption Certificate and map showing the location of your tree
- a stone placed at the base of the tree with the name of the tree and any words of commemoration or inspiration. (Please note, final wording will be arranged with Garden staff to ensure suitability.)
Several trees and one grove of trees are available for adoption. A Tree Adoption costs $1500.
Please note: Because a tree is a living organism, there is a small chance it may become damaged or diseased, or will need to be removed for safety reasons. Such an event would be compensated by a choice of other trees to complete the adoption term.
