Plant a Living Memorial Tree

Making a contribution to Baton Rouge Green's Living Memorials is a wonderful way to pay tribute to your loved ones.  Whether you are helping the memory of your friend or family member live on, marking the birth of a new baby or your grandchild's graduation, or celebrating a milestone event, a Living Memorial donation is a special way to show you care.

Make a donation online by clicking here.

These options are available based on the amount of your donation:

  • Your donation will support the planting of native trees in parks, on school campuses, and in other public green spaces in the greater Baton Rouge area.  Per your instructions, your honoree or the family of your deceased loved one will receive an acknowledgement of your generous donation.  (Contribution required: $25 - $399)
  • If you wish, we can arrange to have a tree of your choice planted in a specific location (including your private property or public space).  Trees (at least 1-1/2" caliper) generally chosen for these plantings are Bald Cypress, Southern Magnolia, or Live Oak. Your honoree or the family of your deceased loved one will receive an acknowledgement of your generous donation.
    (Minimum contribution required: $400)

    Tree selection and location are subject to approval by Baton Rouge Green staff and property owners.
