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.
