Memorialize someone you love by installing a bench or planting a tree in their name at one of our parks or greenspaces.
Memorial trees and benches
We’re pausing our memorial tree and bench program for 2022. During that time, we’ll be reviewing the program’s goals, determine new installation and planting locations and modernize how we deliver the program to better serve our community.
Anyone currently on our waitlist will keep their position and we’ll connect with you when the program opens. We hope to relaunch the program in 2023.
If you’re still interested in a memorial tree or bench, there are programs at the University of Guelph Arboretum and Woodlawn Memorial Park accepting requests.
Existing memorial tree and bench donors
If you already have a memorial tree or bench with us and have a question about maintenance, missing plaques or your tree’s warranty, please reach out to us directly by emailing [email protected].
