Commemorative Tree Planting Program

The Recreation Department is pleased to offer a Commemorative Tree Planting Program which may be used as a form of remembrance for a loved one, celebration of a birth, honouring a retiree, or any other event which you feel should be commemorated by a living tribute.

Presently two locations are available in our municipal parks for commemorative tree planting in the spring or the fall of each year - Island Park in Alexandria and King George Park in Maxville.

The Recreation Department staff will gladly assist you in choosing a location that meets your needs and is compatible with the surrounding environment. At planting, trees are approximately 6' - 8' high and 40mm caliper. An engraved marble marker may be placed at the foot of the tree. The production and costs related to the marble marker are the sole responsibility of the client.

We offer the following services for Commemorative Trees*:

  • Choice of 7 tree species (approximately 6' - 8' high, 40mm caliper) depending on availability
  • Site preparation & planting
  • Installation of commemorative granite cube or plaque (size to be no larger than 16" width x 10"length). Commemorative plaques will be installed flush with the ground to reduce vandalism and allow access of maintenance equipment.
  • 2 year warranty on every new tree

* The Township of North Glengarry is not responsible for maintenance or replacement of Commemorative plaques.
