Do you have a special tree at Green-Wood that you are particularly fond of? Perhaps it overlooks a favorite vista, or shades a loved one’s grave. For a tax-deductible contribution, you may “adopt” one of the trees that make Green-Wood’s landscape so special. A plaque bearing the name of the person you are honoring or memorializing—as well as information about the tree—will be placed at the tree for a period of one, five, or ten years. At the end of the adoption period, you will be given first opportunity to renew.
