Anyone can honor a special person or event by having a tree planted. A tree dedication is the perfect way to celebrate a birth, an anniversary, or to honor a special someone.
The Eureka Parks and Recreation Department will plant a tree of your choice from the preferred list. Trees will be purchased and planted once each year in November. Orders must be placed by September 1st of each year to ensure planting in November. Orders placed after September 1st will be planted the following November.
All trees planted under this program will be marked by a plaque to recognize the participant, event or person for which the tree is dedicated. A sign will also be erected in the lobby of the Community Center to commemorate the names of such individuals or events.
Trees range from six to eight feet and the total cost per tree is $200.00. This cost includes the tree, installation, plaque and continued maintenance of the tree. The City of Eureka will insure the life of the tree for up to two years following the installation date.
Tree dedication recipients will receive a certificate making them aware of the dedication and a map of the tree location once it has been planted.
