Policy on Memorial Trees
The Campus Landscape Architect manages requests for gifts of tree planting on campus in the memory of a member of the faculty, students, or staff. The following conditions apply to the acceptance of a gift to plant a tree.
The campus is pleased to accept a gift to cover the purchase, delivery, and installation of a 24″ box tree.
The Campus Landscape Architect will help the donor select an appropriate species and an appropriate location.
The Campus Landscape Architect will coordinate the installation and maintenance with the Grounds operation.
Neither plaques nor commemorative markers are permitted, although the donors are welcome to arrange a ceremony as a dedication.
The tree becomes the property of the University and the campus staff cannot guarantee the perpetuation of the tree.
The campus will not formally record the memorial.
