Memorial Tree Program

Memorial Trees Balloons

A goal of the Grants Pass Urban Tree Advisory Committee is to revitalize our city parks and by-ways by planting Memorial Groves of trees which are donated to honor individuals. Donated trees must be purchased from the city and are planted in November and December, the optimum time for planting.

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.

Arbor Week Ceremony

Donors are invited to a ceremony honoring the individuals on behalf of whom a tree has been donated and planted. For trees planted before January 1, the ceremony will be held during Arbor Week each year. To donate a tree for planting, submit the Memorial Tree Program form to the City of Grants Pass, or contact Wendy Giordano at 541-450-6060.
