Create a living memorial; plant a commemorative tree in a St. Charles County park to honor the life of friends or loved ones. Our commemorative tree program allows you to celebrate all of life's special events while giving back to nature. Whether you're remembering a family member or looking for the perfect surprise gift, a commemorative tree provides a thoughtful remembrance for any occasion.
For each commemorative tree purchased, members of the St. Charles County Parks staff will plant your tree and provide all necessary horticultural care to promote healthy growth. Each tree is planted in the fall or spring and has a 10-year guarantee from the planting date. Most of the commemorative trees are native to Missouri, making them better suited to withstand the weather extremes of the area. Soon you will be able to track your special tree with our tree inventory system online. No personal items may be left at commemorative tree sites.
