Show your loved ones you care by dedicating a tree or bench in honor of their memory!

The cost to purchase a tree is $125 and a bench is $1650. Plaques vary in price based on size starting at $280. There are three (3) different sizes and as the size increases the engraving space increases; artwork can also be added to plaques.  The following information may help you determine which size you would prefer:

Plaque Sizes for Tree:

5 x 7 @ $330 - three to five lines with 24 characters/spaces across

Tree Dedications:
In September 2010, the City Council allocated $25,000 to the City’s Tree Dedication Program. While the cost of a tree purchased through the dedication program is actually $500, the funding for tree dedications reduced the cost of dedicated trees by 50 percent to encourage participation in the program. In August 2011, the Saratoga Monte Sereno Foundation donated $2500 to the program to further reduce the cost of dedication trees. Trees are now available for $125. Tree dedication grants will be made available on a first come first serve basis. Please note that there are a limited number of trees available at this price.

Please allow 5 to 6 weeks for delivery.
