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 planting of memorial and celebration trees in one of Denver’s beautiful parks.
Tribute Trees are planted twice per year, in March and October, although we accept requests at any time. The cost for a Tribute Tree is $500. Your tree will be tagged with the name of person/people/event being 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 specific park and location.
Trees are planted twice per year. The request cut-off deadline for Spring planting is January 31st and the request cut-off deadline for Fall planting is July 31st.
Now accepting requests for Fall 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.
