Adopt a Tree


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 or the person you are honoring or memorializing—as well as information about the tree—will be placed on 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.

If you have a tree in mind, please contact Penelope H. Duus by email to ensure that it is available for adoption (the quickest way to check is by tag number, which you can find on a small silver tag on each tree). Open to adopting any tree? Let us know in the comments box at checkout we will reach out with instructions for selecting a tree!
