Spring Grove's Legacy Tree Program

The Legacy Tree Program offers families an opportunity to remember their loved ones while enhancing the natural beauty and tradition of Spring Grove and Oak Hill Cemeteries.

 

Program Details

By participating in the Legacy Tree Program you are able to have a new tree planted in memory of or in honor of your loved one. While the tree, its source and setting is determined by the Horticulture Supervisors, there usually is a range of both tree species and sites to choose from. You may also chose an existing tree as a Legacy Tree.  A bronze plaque will be placed in a granite footing at the base of the tree and will remain there for the life of the tree. In addition, your loved ones’ name will be engraved on the Horticulture Remembrance Plaque which is on display in the lobby of Spring Grove Cemetery’s Customer Service Center.

Legacy trees are a living tribute with a finite longevity. Under most circumstances and with the proper care, most trees typically live for decades. Every effort will be made to maintain the tree in the best of health to ensure maximum lifespan. If the tree dies within 5 years of planting, Spring Grove will replace it with another of the same or similar kind. If the tree fails after the initial 5 years families have the option to replace the tree for the cost of a new tree plus installation labor. (If replacement is needed it does not begin a new 5 year assurance).

Horticulture Supervisors and staff are responsible for any and all care the tree receives.

Program cost of $2250 covers purchasing the tree, installation, all maintenance*, and any replacement needed within the first 5 years. Cost of bronze plaque and granite base also included.

*Maintenance includes: watering, fertilizing, mulching, pruning, weeding, edging, and complete plant health care. 

How the Money is Used

Your contribution will be ear-marked for conservation and enhancement of Spring Grove's Arboretum and horticultural endeavors. Not only will your donation offset the cost of purchasing new trees and plants for the grounds, your contribution helps maintain the beautiful, natural environment of Spring Grove.
