The Forestry Division receives many inquiries about planting trees to
honor someone or to commemorate a special event. We work with
individuals, families, service clubs, and organizations to find the
right species of tree and the right planting area to mark their special
event. Planting sites are available in local parks, recreation areas,
and along walking trails. For more information, contact the Forestry
Division at (701) 355-1733 or fill out the online request form.
Plaques To commemorate the dedication of the tree, a bronze plaque may be placed near the tree. Plaques need to be mounted in concrete and set in the ground. The tree and plaque are selected and paid for by the family or group requesting the planting.
