Memorial Tree Program
The Delhi Township Parks and Recreation Department has established a “Memorial Tree Program” whereby a tree can be planted in any of the Delhi Township Parks in the name of a Delhi Township resident. The types of trees being considered for the program are:
|Black Gum||Cucumber Magnolia||Norway Spruce|
|Pin Oak||Red Bud||Red Maple|
|Red Oak||Sugar Maple||Yellow Buckeye|
Tree species and location are determined by availability and design plans for the park. The donor may request an area of a park for the tree to be planted, however, the final decision will be made by the Parks and Recreation Department keeping in mind the type of tree and maintaining open area where appropriate.
We will also consider a special request tree if available.
The Memorial Tree Plaque is located in the Glen Carder Lodge entryway. For every tree purchased, an individual leaf-shaped plate will be engraved and placed on a plaque (image below). The engraving will consist of the name of the person, the date of the event, and the name of the donor.
The cost of a Memorial Tree is $250. This includes the memorial plaque, engraving, purchase, and planting of the tree. To order a memorial tree, please complete, print, and mail the order form, accompanied with your payment, to the address below. Please include valid contact information so we can keep you updated with the status of your order as trees are planted in bulk only once or twice per year.
For more information on the Memorial Tree Program, please contact the Parks & Recreation Department.
For an additional cost of $100.00, a custom wood plaque can be placed at the memorial tree.
To order a memorial tree, please complete the order form and return with payment to the park office. If you have any questions, please call the park office @ (513) 451-3300.
