Enjoy, respect, and preserve the forests of Vigo County
TREES Inc. offers a special opportunity to memorialize or honor a loved one, friend or special occasion by planting a tree in Deming or Collett parks. A tree is a living gift that will add beauty to a community park and offer shelter, comfort and pleasure for years to come.
You can sponsor an individual tree for $200 (which includes the tree and a sign placed on the tree acknowledging the individual or occasion being honored) or you can contribute any amount to the Memorial and Commemorative Tree Fund. Contributions to this fund are added to other contributions to help with TREES’ ongoing program of planting trees in Deming and Collett parks.
TREES will send a written notification of your gift to the individual or family of the person being remembered or honored.
> Trees planted through this program are top quality native Indiana hardwoods, professionally selected and planted.
> Tree species is determined by the location and needs of the particular park as well as species availability.
> All trees are planted in late fall
Requests for a specific tree species or a specific park are honored when possible. Deadline for ordering a tree to be planted each calendar year is October 1.
After planting, the individual or family of the person being remembered or honored will be notified of the location and species of the tree, and a sign will be placed on the tree.

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.
