This makes it important that we take care of our existing trees; it also gives us a mission of striving to plant new trees on a regular basis. Our plan calls for commemorative trees to be planted in areas reserved for tree plantings during the fall and winter months (the best time for planting).
Tree plantings offer families, friends, and business associates an opportunity to commemorate loved ones and fellow employees while enhancing the natural beauty of our City. Select a City park or Oak Cemetery for your tree.
A Maple tree was donated in honor of Virginia Waldon
and her many years of service with the
Fort Smith Parks & Recreation Commission.
The Urban Forester will assist you in selecting a site and type of tree best suited for the location. The Tree Selection List is available at the Departmentʼs Office. It is used to decide what types of trees are needed in each park.
A $250.00 donation is required to plant a commemorative tree. This amount includes the purchase of a tree with an approximate 2-inch thick trunk, a commemorative bronze leaf plaque, and the treeʼs future maintenance costs with replacement guaranteed for three years from the date of original planting. Donors also receive a Fort Smith Parks and Recreation Tree Donor certificate.
