Enjoy, respect, and preserve the forests of Vigo County
A special opportunity is offered by TREES to memorialize or honor a friend, loved one, or special occasion while helping to beautify Terre Haute and Vigo County community parks.
A memorial or commemorative tree provides a lasting tribute to remember a special person or special occasion. A tree is a living gift which will add beauty to a community park and offer shelter, comfort, and pleasure for years to come.
Written notification of your gift will be sent from TREES to the individual or to the family of the person being remembered or honored.
A Gift in Honor
Plant a commemorative tree to honor an achievement or milestone, say thank you, or simply express your love and respect for a friend, relative, colleague, or other person special to you.
A Gift in Celebration
Plant a commemorative tree to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, a wedding, the birth of a child, or other important event.
A Gift in Memory
Plant a memorial tree as a living tribute to someone who has been special to you, your family, your friends.

TREES Inc. will replace a tree if it fails to leaf out in the first spring after planting or dies during the first year after planting. However, too many factors affect the survival and growth of a tree for TREES to guarantee the life of a tree after the first year. TREES does, however, promise that the tree will be professionally planted and given a good start to grow as a living memorial of your loved one or a tribute to the person or event being honored by your gift.
