Tree and Bench Dedication Program
8/24/2011  The City of Saratoga's Tree & Bench Dedication Program allows members of the public to purchase trees or benches for dedication purposes. Trees and benches dedicated through this program are placed on City property, usually in City parks or along Saratoga trails.

While the cost of a tree purchased through the dedication program is $500, the Saratoga City Council reduced the cost of dedicated trees by 50 percent to encourage participation in the program. Thanks to a donation from the Saratoga Monte Sereno Community Foundation, the cost of dedication trees has been further reduced to $125.

For more information, contact Joan Smith with the City of Saratoga.
