Commemorative Tree Program

Commemorative Tree Program
Plant a tree. Honor a loved one. Watch happiness grow.

Rooted in love.

Trees bring beauty. They benefit the environment. And soon, they’ll represent enduring memorials to those nearest and dearest to us.

The City of La Vista’s Commemorative Tree Program gives La Vista residents the opportunity to commemorate their loved ones or recognize an organization by planting a tree in their honor.

You choose the city park and tree species, and we’ll do the rest.

How the program works

1. First, fill out an application. Applications can be submitted online or in-person at City Hall. Or, simply fill out the application on the back of this brochure.

Donors can choose which tree species they’d like planted, the park location and a personalized message on a commemorative tree marker.

2. Applications must then be mailed or delivered to the Park Superintendent at the address below.
La Vista Public Works
Attn: Park Superintendent
9900 Portal Road
La Vista, NE 68128

Applications filed before February 1st will have trees planted in the springtime. Applications filed from February 1st to August 1st will be planted in the fall.

3. Your selected tree will be purchased, planted and maintained by the City of La Vista. The City will be responsible for the tree for a period of 5 years after planting.

Commemorative Tree Markers
Commemorative markers will be mounted next to the tree on an in-ground plaque. You may have your tree re-marked, but you’ll be responsible for the cost of a new marker ($50).

The cost of the Commemorative Tree Program is $300 per tree. This includes the planting of the tree, the commemorative tree marker and 5 years of maintenance.
