Dedication Trees

Please note: our tree dedication program is temporarily on hiatus until next summer (2020). If you are interested, please contact us next May and we will be happy to help find the right tree for you.

Many of the trees within The Arboretum's collections are available for dedication. Interested donors can meet with The Arboretum Director or designate in selecting a tree for their dedication.

Each dedicated tree will have at its base an engraved, black, anodized 3"x 6" aluminum plaque mounted on an aluminum stake. These plaques have space for an eight line inscription with approximately 35 characters (including spaces) per line.

The cost of a tree dedication is currently being reviewed, but is considered a donation to the Arboretum.

Fifty percent of the donation for a dedication tree is added to The Arboretum Endowment Fund for long-term care of the tree.

For further information, please contact Arboretum Director Shelley Hunt at 519-824-4120, ext 52356 or shunt@uoguelph.ca.
