Memorial Tree Program

Planting a tree is a beautiful and lasting way to honor a friend or memorialize a loved one. Fill out the attached application (PDF) indicating your preferred location and type of tree and mail with a check to the address provided. You'll not only be giving a perfect gift for a birthday, graduation, wedding, or retirement, but you'll also be giving a gift to your community. Honorees will receive a certificate, and their names will be listed on our webpage and placed on a plaque for display at the High Point library.
  • Applications must be received with enough time for the city Parks and Recreation Department to arrange for tree planting during the planting season (October-March) when all trees will be planted.
  • Donation amounts include the cost of replacing trees if necessary within the first 2 years.
  • All donations are tax deductible.
Choose a city-owned facility (PDF), such as a city park or golf course as the preferred location for your tree.
