Commemorative Tree Program - Provides a unique way for residents and visitors to commemorate a special event, memory, or loved one. Through this program, participants can donate a tree that will contribute to the enhancement of the City’s urban forest. Through this program, participants will be helping the City increase the overall canopy coverage, improve species diversity and increase the total number of canopy trees planted citywide. All donated Commemorative trees shall be entered into the City's OpenTreeMap GIS database, which will show the final tree location(s) along with a breakdown of the environmental benefits provided including energy conserved, stormwater filtered, air quality improved, carbon dioxide removed and carbon dioxide stored to date.
