Commemorative Trees and Benches

The Commemorative Trees and Benches program is a campus wide program that allows donors to give in memory or honor of loved ones. When trees or benches are placed on campus outside of the Garden, the funds support the Campus Beautification Fund. When placed within the Garden, the funds support the mission of the Garden. Siting of trees and benches is assisted by campus landscape architects or the Director of the Garden. More information is available here.

If you are interested in supporting the Garden in this way and honoring a loved one, please contact Stephen Troost, Campus Planner, at
