Trees in Tribute

Our Trees In Tribute Program facilitates the planting of memorial trees in Lexington's city parks and on private property.


Trees In Tribute are planted to commemorate significant and meaningful moments in life; in celebration of milestones, recognition of achievements, and as a living monument in remembrance of departed loved ones. 

Planting these trees in our parks enhances the beauty and health of our community while also providing a public space for reflection and remembrance.

After we receive your request, a Trees Lexington representative will contact you to gather more information and begin planning your Trees In Tribute planting. If you are seeking a planting site in one of Lexington’s parks, we will coordinate with Parks & Recreation officials on your behalf. 


The cost for installing a landscape sized 2-inch caliper tree is five hundred dollars.
