City of Salisbury announces Tree and Park item donation program
SALISBURY, Md. – The City of Salisbury has announced the launch of a tree and park item donation program, giving citizens a way to memorialize or commemorate a loved one, organization, or special event by installing a tree, bench, or other park item.
Officials say this program offers a unique and long lasting way to recognize milestones, come together as an organization for a tree planting, or instill a loved one’s memory for generations to come.
Donors may select native trees from the native tree species referenced in the city’s Tree Canopy Study. Memorial tree sponsors will receive a certificate of acknowledgment for their donation and the tree will be tagged with a message of up to 200 characters.
In addition to being able to donate trees and dedicate trees that are already planted, citizens will also have the option to donate a new park bench or have an existing park bench dedicated to the person or organization of their choosing.
Citizens interested in donating a tree or park item must first fill out a Park and Tree Item Donation application. Once the city has reviewed your application, a representative will reach out to the donor to confirm the donated item, cost, plaque inscription, and any other important details.
