Plant a tree in the parks and establish a legacy for generations to come.
“He that plants trees loves others beside himself.” – Thomas Fuller
Why plant a tree in Pittsburgh's parks?
In tribute to someone you respect, love, or admire
To celebrate a birth, birthday, or marriage
In recognition of a promotion, life change, or achievement
As a gesture of community service
In memory of someone who has passed away
Please note that for the health of the trees and our park systems, trees donated after September 1 will not be planted until Spring 2020.
Restoration tree planting
Donate to have a Restoration tree planted by our parks volunteers. Your gift helps to restore our urban forest. The park where your tree will be planted will be selected by a Parks Conservancy ecologist based on need.
Commemorative tree planting
Donate to have Parks Conservancy staff plant a larger (2” caliper) Commemorative tree. These trees are more substantial in size and maturity and your donation covers two years of care and maintenance by Parks Conservancy staff. We will work with you to select the best park location that will honor your loved one.
Commemorative tree planting and ceremony
Donate to have Parks Conservancy staff plant a larger (2” caliper) Commemorative tree that includes hosting a planting ceremony with as many friends and family as you’d like. At this donation level our staff will work with you to select a tree type and specific location that will honor your loved one.
