Whether you want to celebrate an occasion like a birth, wedding, or anniversary, or you want to remember someone close to you, a Tribute Tree is a meaningful memorial that grows stronger and more beautiful with each passing year. The Park People will work closely with you and with Denver Parks & Recreation (DPR) to facilitate the siting and planting of memorial and celebration trees in Denver’s Parks.
We accept requests throughout the year and the Tribute Trees are planted in March and October. The cost for a Tribute Tree is $500. Your tree will be tagged with the name of person/people being honored, commemorated on the TreeKeeper website, and you'll receive a personalized Tribute Tree certificate.
To request a Tribute Tree, please fill out our form below. Once we have your request, we will contact you via email with instructions guiding you to pay for your tree and choose a location.
Trees are planted twice a year. Fall 2023 requestes have closed - any new requests will be planted in Spring 2024.
Please note: Current policy prohibits the placement of plaques and other signage next to park trees. Additionally, plantings cannot be scheduled in conjunction with ceremonies. Upon request, mulch can be left next to the tree for family and friends to use to complete the planting as part of a ceremony.
