Memorial Tree Program

Memorial Trees Balloons

A goal of the Grants Pass Urban Tree Advisory Committee is to revitalize City parks by planting trees that are donated to honor individuals, organizations, or causes.

Trees Offered

The City of Grants Pass offers high quality trees to purchase for a donated planting. The trees are approximately 1.5 inches in diameter and 10 feet in height for deciduous trees, 3 to 5 feet in height for conifer trees. The price of either type of tree is $100.

Two Year Guarantee

Each tree is guaranteed for 2 years and will be replaced by the city at no extra charge should it die within 2 years. It is understood once planted, the tree is the exclusive property of the city which is responsible for watering, fertilizing, pruning, and mulching as it deems necessary.

When Trees Will Be Planted

Applications submitted between December 20 and June 19 will be planted in the fall. Applications submitted between June 20 and December 19 will be planted in the spring
