Memorial Trees


Make a donation to have a tree planted in a City park to honor the memory of your loved one. You and your family are welcome to attend the tree planting and even help plant the tree if you wish.


Contact our Forestry Technician at 303-205-7555 to discuss planting location, tree species and cost. The Wheat Ridge Community Foundation will match your donation up to $125 per tree.

Planting Season

Memorial trees are typically planted in the spring or fall, dependent on plant availability and ground thaw. The tree will become part of the City's tree inventory and will be maintained by Wheat Ridge Forestry.
