For the tree, this includes planting, fertilizing, mulching, pruning and replacing if needed within the 10 year period. Plaques are installed and replaced if needed within the 10 year period. After 10 years, plaques will be uninstalled and available for the honoree or his/her family to keep as a memento.
  • Legacy trees must be left as-is; no additional decorations, plantings or ashes may be added.
  • A plaque is installed at the base of each legacy tree, with the exception of Glenwood Gardens and Fernbank Park. At Glenwood Gardens and Fernbank Park, the honoree’s name is added to a centrally-located plaque.
  • Excluding legacy trees at Glenwood Gardens and Fernbank Park, plaques read: Tree Species, Planting in Honor (or Memory) of, Honoree’s Name, Great Parks Forever 20XX
  • An acknowledgement card can be sent to the honoree’s family if an address is provided.
  • New trees are planted between October 1 and December 15. New planting sites adopted after October 1, will be planted the following year between October 1 and December 15.
  • Contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
