Tree Memorial Gift
West Newton Cemetery has many beautiful mature trees to be a memorial to loved ones
Commemorative Tree: $5,000
The donation includes the tree, plaque (5″x 10″, placed at the base of the tree), shipping, labor and materials, mulch, water, and on-going maintenance.
Commemorative gifts will be maintained for the useful life of the tree. If a commemorative tree becomes unsightly due to disease, vandalism, or acts of God (we reserve the right for aesthetic judgments) or if a tree needs to be removed or relocated due to unforeseen construction within 10 years of its donation, it will be replaced at no additional cost to the donor. After 10 years, the tree will not be replaced.
A bronze plaque to acknowledge the gift and the person honored will be placed at the site. A mock-up of the exact wording will be sent to the donor(s) for approval. The plaque will read:
- Common and Botanical tree names (for trees only)
- One line beginning with “In memory of (name)”, or “To commemorate (name)”, or “In celebration of (name)”
- One line beginning with “Donated by (name)”
- Projects typically take 10-15 weeks to complete from the date the total donation is received.
