Memorial Tree & Bench Sponsor Program

Through the Memorial Tree and Bench Program anyone can provide a unique dedication to honor a friend, relative, or member of an organization by placing a tree or bench in one of Bellevue’s Parks. This dedication provides a lasting memory and enhances the meaning of a tree or bench to others.  The gift is also a valuable contribution to our park system to be used and enjoyed by all.

Tree Sponsors
The cost of a memorial tree is $425.  This price includes the tree, plaque on recognition board, regular maintenance including fertilizing, pruning and mulching.  The trees are 2 – 2 ½ inches in diameter, balled and burlapped.  Trees will be planted at the appropriate time of the year to ensure optimal growth (typically May & October as weather permits).  Six tree species available for this program include:

  • Freeman Maple
  • Sugar Maple
  • Bur Oak
  • Swamp White Oak
  • Kentucky Coffeetree
  • American Linden
Bench Sponsors
The cost of a memorial bench is $950.  The price includes a six foot bench with a back plaque, and installation on a concrete pad.  Benches will be installed in the early Summer or Fall.
