Memorial Program is an excellent opportunity for people to honor a
special person or event by having a tree planted in a St. Peters City
Park or on other city-owned property. There are currently over 320
memorial trees planted throughout the Parks system incorporating over 60
different species of trees and shrubs. The standard size donation is
$100, although smaller donations or larger donations for items other
than trees can be arranged with the Parks Department. A decorative
plaque may also be installed with the memorial tree for an additional
cost. Both residents and non-residents are eligible to donate to the
Parks Department staff install new memorial
trees between the months of March and May. Tree availability, weather,
and seasonal workload may affect the exact date of planting during that
period. Tree donations received after May 31 will not be planted until
the following spring. Click here for a list of possible tree types for your memorial.
