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, commemorated on the TreeKeeper website, and you'll receive an additional tree tag with your certificate.
To request a Tribute Tree, please fill out our form below. Please be aware that you'll receive an email to select your tree's site after the application deadline.
Trees are planted twice a year; we are currently accepting Fall requests until July 31, 2023.
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.
