Commemorative Trees and Benches

The Commemorative Tree and Bench Program invites the public to pay tribute to a person or occasion by purchasing a park bench or tree to recognize the life of a loved one or celebrate an event in the community.

The purpose of the program is to provide citizens with the opportunity to honour loved ones and families or groups by having a bench, picnic table, or tree with a dedication plaque installed on municipal property. This program is intended to memorialize people or occasions, and is not extended to animals.

For more details, please see the Commemorative Tree and Bench Program Information and the Tree Guide – Species and Care Information. A map of Eligible Locations will help you decide where you would like to place your installation.  To apply, please submit a Commemorative Tree and Bench Program Application to the municipal office.
